One of the masterpieces of Western music, Bach’s emotional and dramatic re-telling of the Passion story is an astounding feat of imagination. As the Evangelist narrates the story, Bach uses all the instrumental and vocal resources at his disposal, from poignant arias to turbulent double choruses, to heighten and reflect on the action. Conceived on a grand yet irresistibly human scale, every performance is a special event.
