J. S. BACH: St. Matthew Passion
Johann Sebastian Bach's St Matthew Passion is an arduous journey through suffering, guilt and the trials of faith. The work explores Christianity's central mystery, one might say, passionately, but as if in slow motion, concentrating less on the action of the story and more on the internal emotions at play.
In collaboration with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
