The Bach Choir & Orchestra of the Netherlands: St Matthew Passion

The 'St Matthew Passion' is considered the favorite composition in the Netherlands during the Passion period and is anchored in our culture. Johann Sebastian Bach devised a unique arrangement for his magnum opus: two choirs and two orchestras. An intimate setup has been chosen on the stage of the Royal Concertgebouw, where the musicians will be even more visible, and the music will be optimally presented.

Bach's St. Matthew Passion

The composition tells the story of Christ's passion, in which symbolism plays a significant role. Bach uses all kinds of musical means to achieve rich effects. He wrote specific roles for both instruments and soloists. The narrator, the evangelist, takes you through the story. He is alternated by the choir, on the one hand intimate and on the other overwhelming. Every soloist has an emotional dimension, such as love, sorrow, comfort, and contemplation.

The Bach Choir and Orchestra of the Netherlands

The musicians of the Bach Orchestra play authentic instruments from Bach's time, and The Bach Choir is praised for its dynamic and expressive sound. The (inter)national soloists have enormous dedication, which will be audible and visible during the masterful arias. Like no other, they can convey symbolism, emotion and comfort to you as a listener.
