Betrayal, condemnation, and death. But above all: love. Although the text of the St Matthew Passion is centuries old, the story and the message remain relevant. And Bach's masterful music continues to touch hearts, year after year. With Rademann, Bach's masterpiece is in good hands. This true Bach aficionado – founder of the Dresdner Kammerchor, artistic director of the Bachakademie Stuttgart, and a familiar name at the international music festival Bachfest – seeks, with each performance of the St Matthew Passion, a contemporary, new approach.
