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

Sir Sir Simon Rattle left no doubt: For him the performance of the St. Matthew Passion, which he realised with the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Rundfunkchor Berlin in early 2010, was “the most important thing we’ve ever done here”. Critics around the world agreed with him and praised both the semi-staged production by the American star director Peter Sellars and the outstanding musical performances.
