Matthew Passion

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Wigmore Hall, 36 Wigmore St
London, W1H 0BP United Kingdom

Described as ‘the most sought-after evangelist of his generation’, Nicholas Mulroy has been central to our annual Matthew Passion performances for more than a decade. This year, in a Dunedin Consort first, he takes the helm as director, combining his unparalleled gift for storytelling with a musicality that is touching and inspiring in equal measure. Performed in Dunedin Consort’s celebrated one-to-a-part interpretation, Bach’s masterpiece is at its most powerful — a glorious work of optimism, hope, togetherness and salvation.
