The Director’s Series
St. Matthew Passion
The Pinnacle of Passion
Jacob Perry, Jr.
MORE ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Bach’s St. Matthew Passion is thought by many to be his most profoundly crafted work—perhaps his magnum opus. Some even see it as one of the greatest musical compositions of all time. Its musical architecture alone has been praised for centuries. Above all, our Consort musicians live to perform it! Falling into obscurity after Bach’s lifetime, it was reintroduced by Felix Mendelssohn in 1829 at the head of the modern Bach revival. With its deeply expressive rhetorical gifts, it is an experience that will remain in your memory long after the performance has ended.
