Matthew Passion

Matthew Passion

Matthew Passion

As part of the Concertgebouw orchestra’s rich Passion tradition, a performance of Frank Martin’s Golgotha​ was given around this time last year. This season sees the return of two old acquaintances: Bach’s St Matthew Passion and Philippe Herreweghe. The Belgian conductor is performing together with his very own Collegium Vocale Gent, which he naturally knows like the back of his hand. It has been exactly ten years since the ensemble’s last performance with the orchestra. The bass Thomas Bauer previously sang the role of Christ to great acclaim in Amsterdam, while the tenor Maximilian Schmitt is making his debut as the Evangelist.
