Dunedin’s Messiah and Matthew Passion – Recommended by BBC Music Magazine

We would naturally recommend our own recordings of Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Matthew Passion, but are always delighted when others agree with us. A special edition from BBC Music Magazine focusing on the lives and essential works of The Great Composers lists both our Messiah and Matthew Passion as the recommended recordings.

Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Matthew Passion represent two fundamental pillars of the Western European music tradition. Our recording of Handel’s Messiah won the Gramophone Award in 2007 for best baroque vocal recording and a MIDEM award. Bach’s Matthew Passion is not short of accolades receiving the best recording 2008 by High Fidelity magazine.

Dunedin’s success on both the platform and the recording market is testament to the passion and commitment of our artists.

Events

Matthew Passion

Please note the change of venue. This concert will now take place at Greyfriars Kirk. All tickets remain valid.

Over the years, our celebrated interpretation of Bach’s Matthew Passion has earned us five-star reviews, coveted awards and taken us around the world. It has become one of the cornerstones of our season. But in 2020, for the first time in our history, the concert halls fell silent and our annual performances were cancelled. It was a strange and sombre Easter without Bach’s music for comfort.  

This year, we return to Edinburgh and Perth with one of Bach’s most heart-rending works, a piece that feels more powerful now than ever. With that silent Easter behind us, we look forward to rejoicing once more in Bach’s glorious music, and its message of hope, togetherness and salvation
