Bach's St Matthew Passion: Théâtre des Champs-Elysées
Mark Padmore conducts the Orchestra and Choir of the Age of Enlightenment in a performance of Bach's St. Matthew Passion. The list of excellent soloists includes soprano Katherine Watson, tenor Mark Padmore himself, and bass Matthew Brook.
In the The St. Matthew Passion, his second major Passion after the St. John Passion, Bach made several innovations, such as adding a third choir and more varied recitatives. The result is a masterpiece that is one of the most poignant and complex Passions of all time.
Sung in German, with French surtitles
