The gripping passion and death story of Jesus Christ. Of the Last days of the son of God as a mortal on earth. Bach's world-famous St. Matthew Passion is a timeless monumental work about faith, betrayal, faithfulness, self-sacrifice, love and forgiveness. Universal themes with which Bach creates Matthäus madness every year and thrills many. With tonight an absolute specialist of the St. Matthew Passion for the Residentie Orkest: our regular guest conductor Richard Egarr.

Richard Egarr is the connoisseur of choral works by Bach. He participated in many performances of the St. Matthew Passion, and also recorded a CD of the passion narrative. Tonight he conducts our orchestra, a cast of star soloists, the Nederlands Kamerkoor and the boys' voices of the Haags Matrozenkoor. The Silent Saturday before Easter is thus complete.

"Bach's world-famous St. Matthew Passion is a timeless monumental work about faith, betrayal, loyalty, self-sacrifice, love and forgiveness."
