Bach's St. Matthew Passion

In the Netherlands, the St. Matthew Passion is the most frequently performed classical musical work in the period before Easter. It is regarded by musicians, scholars and classical music fans alike as one of the true gems of classical music, composed by the great Johann Sebastian Bach.

From March 20 to April 17, it will be performed more than 30 times in some of the most prestigious venues in the country by The Bach Choir & Orchestra of the Netherlands, conducted by Baroque music specialist Pieter Jan Leusink.
