St Matthew Passion

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

Performed on period instruments by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Bach’s oratorio retains its emotional impact 300 years after its premiere.

An unsentimental depiction of the Easter story, it yields new riches after years of exploration.

The OAE’s instruments reveal the original colours and textures of the music.

It is sung by a top cast including soprano Mary Bevan, Paula Murrihy, and tenor Mark Padmore in the role of the Evangelist and directing the orchestra.
