Petroc Trelawny presents a performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion which is considered a pinnacle of Western music and one of the most original music dramas of any age. Bach's intensely moving account of the events leading up to the Crucifixion interweaves the narration of Christ's mission and his political fate with mankind's response, in a sequence of impassioned and meditative arias and chorales.
Evangelist ...... Ian Bostridge (tenor)
