About The Event
J.S. BACH: ST. MATTHEW PASSION
J.S. Bach’s vivid musical account of Christ's passion combines a striking drama and devotion forming a pinnacle of the vocal works composed for the Leipzig churches. Bach's St. Matthew Passion was written for the Good Friday Vespers service of 1727 at the St Thomas' Church Leipzig and brings together relevant themes of betrayal, judgement, death, and love as expressed through St. Matthew's Gospel and Bach's librettist Picander.
SOLOISTS: Aaron Sheehan, Evangelist Clara Rottsolk, Soprano Estelí Gomez, Soprano Virginia Warnken, Mezzo-Soprano Jay Carter, Countertenor Paul Max Tipton (Christus), Bass-Baritone Enrico Lagasca (Pilatus), Bass-Baritone
