Musical history isn’t always what you think. Today, Bach’s St Matthew Passion is revered as one of the greatest choral works ever composed – a mighty, profoundly moving expression of a shared humanity. But for over a century it was nearly forgotten, until the 20-year-old Felix Mendelssohn brought it out of the shadows in 1829. Tonight, Andrew Manze and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir recreate that game-changing moment, using Mendelssohn’s own version of the St Matthew Passion to throw a revealing new light on a timeless classic.
This performance will now be sung in German. This performance will be signed by BSL interpreter, Paul Whittaker OBE. For details on how to book the most suitable seats, please email Box Office at ticketing@liverpoolphil.com or call 0151 709 3789.
