Bach’s St. Matthew Passion
Thursday, April 7, 2022 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Bernard Labadie by Dario Acosta
J. S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion is a deeply moving musical meditation on the last days of Jesus’s life. Expressive arias, highly dramatic choral writing, and nuanced instrumental passages come together in a towering masterpiece that prompted Leonard Bernstein to say, “there is nothing like it in all of music.” Bernard Labadie, one of the preeminent Bach conductors, is on the podium for this performance that features a cast of outstanding singers, brilliant choirs, and the superb Orchestra of St. Luke’s
