About the Event

Hear the classical music performance of a lifetime at Seville's Teatro de la Maestranza for an unforgettable concert highlighting St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244 by Bach.

St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244


St. Matthew Passion is a sacred oratorium by Johann Sebastian Bahc for soloists, two choirs and two orchestras. It is one of the most largescale vocal pieces by the composer, that consists of 78 parts, as well as recitatives, arias and chorals. The total duration of this piece, that tells the story oft he last days of Jesus, is about 3 hours. The work, which was initially intended for Lutheran masses, now is being performed more often at concerts. Due to its dramatic plot and distinct characters, the Passion resembles an opera more than other Bach’s choral works.

Artists

Orchestra: Freiburger Barockorchester

Freiburger Barockorchester (Freiburg Baroque Orchestra) is an orchestra originally founded 'to enliven the world of Baroque music with new sounds.' The orchestra, based in Freiburg, Germany now also performs works by later composers such as Beethoven, Schubert and Weber as well as contemporary music. They play small group chamber music as well as symphonies for large orchestras.

The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra gave its first concert in 1987 and began touring abroad with a performance in Amsterdam in 1989 and came to America first in 1995. Today, half of the orchestra's concerts are performed abroad. The musicians chose Gottfried von der Goltz and Petra Müllejans from among their own members as musical directors. (Both von der Goltz and Müllejans are violinists.) The orchestra performs one‐quarter of its concerts under guest conductors, such as Ivor Bolton, René Jacobs, Philippe Herreweghe or Trevor Pinnock.
