Sir Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars in conversation with Andy King-Dabbs (32 min.)

Sir Simon Rattle got to know the St John Passion only at 30; for a long time Peter Sellars considered the work a mere preliminary study to St Matthew Passion. In conversation with English music film director Andy King-Dabbs the composer and director tell how they each discovered the music’s “avantgarde” and “expressionist” qualities – and how they arrived at their acclaimed semi-staged interpretation of the work.
