J.S. Bach, Matthew Passion, BWV 244
Nicholas Mulroy, Evangelist & director
Stephan Loges, Christus
Described as ‘the most sought-after evangelist of his generation’, Nicholas Mulroy has been central to our annual Matthew Passion performances for more than a decade. This year, in a Dunedin Consort first, he takes the helm as director, combining his unparalleled gift for storytelling with a musicality that is touching and inspiring in equal measure.
Performed in Dunedin Consort’s celebrated one-to-a-part interpretation, Bach’s masterpiece is at its most powerful — a glorious work of optimism, hope, togetherness and salvation.
