J.S. Bach is considered by most musicians to be the most important composer in history, but he was also an amazing dramatist. Both skills are on display in his St. Matthew Passion. First performed on Good Friday in 1729, this last of Bach’s passions is the largest single composition he wrote. In both scale and musical demands, this composition takes the audience and music-makers alike on an emotional musical journey. Conductor John V. Sinclair considers this Bach’s finest large-scale work and one of the greatest creations of Western civilization. Every moment of this work confirms Bach’s genius.
