Every two years, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century performs a passion with Cappella Amsterdam. Two years ago the St. Matthew Passion, so this year it's Johannes' turn again. No matter how often it plays this repertoire, it always sounds different. Never do the musicians and singers take the score for granted.
Bach's Passions keep the Netherlands in their grip every year, and every year there seem to be more and more to come. And this is another reason why the orchestra is proud to be able to bring the international creme de la creme of early music to the Netherlands this season. Specialists in the genre such as Norwegian soprano Berit Norbakken British baritone Peter Harvey shine in Bach's masterpiece. Conductor Daniel Reuss leads the orchestra and singers to the emotional heights and depths in the story of the crucifixion.
