Arguably the greatest work in Western classical music, the St. Matthew Passion reflects on the central drama of the Christian religion: the trial, suffering, and death of Jesus as a redemptive act for humankind. Bach draws upon the boundless reservoir of his genius to tell this moving story. The combined forces of the H+H Orchestra, chorus, and six soloists bring this masterpiece — with its near-operatic proportions and intensity — to life, the way it was meant to be heard. Expect a deeply moving, spiritual, and authentic musical experience.
