Bach: St. Matthew Passion
February 3 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
When Bach sets one of the world’s best-known stories to music, a monumental and quasi-theatrical work is presented to listeners.
Imbued with piety as well as emotional power and dramatic effect, the St Matthew Passion is a masterpiece of polyphonic and contrapuntal music, a narrative whose characters appear in succession and question each other, and where the two choirs by turns join forces, then ignore or complement each other.
The Chœur classique de Montréal, well known to classical music lovers who frequent the Maison symphonique, once again presents an exceptional concert in keeping with its reputation for excellence.
