This year, Jan Willem de Vriend once again takes on Bach’s most famous work, the St Matthew Passion. Bach depicts a moving musical tribute to the suffering and death of Christ. For countless Dutch people, this concert is their annual encounter with the extraordinarily beautiful arias, recitatives and chorales of this masterpiece. Music that makes time stand still – for a moment.

“De Vriend’s interpretation of the St Matthew Passion is compelling.” –
NRC HANDELSBLAD
