Bach’s St. Matthew Passion

Berliner Barock Solisten & Franz Schubert Filh
To commemorate that February 1921, the Orfeó Català together with guest soloists from the Berliner Philharmoniker and the musicians of the Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae again represent the Passion at the Palau de la Música Catalana.

To speak of the St. Matthew Passion is also to speak of the recovery of early music; after Bach’s death the work was forgotten. At that time, religious music of the Lutheran environment had a practical purpose and it was difficult for the works to resonate with audiences outside the churches.

To commemorate that February 1921, the Orfeó Català together with guest soloists from the Berliner Philharmoniker and the musicians of the Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae again represent the Passion at the Palau de la Música Catalana.
