Bach’s “St Matthew Passion” with Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars

Bach’s St Matthew Passion in the staging by Peter Sellars is one of the landmarks of the Simon Rattle era with the Berliner Philharmoniker. In this haunting version, Bach’s monumental work is not only explored from a new perspective; in a way never seen before, the Philharmonie itself proved to be a great venue for staged performances. This recording comes from the second series of performances in October 2013.
