About this concert

Bach’s St John Passion never misses its mark. Whether you listen to the work as pure music or are familiar with the story of the Passion, this music never fails to move the listener. Bach used every means at his disposal to effectively set the text and make it understandable. The St John Passion is an intense and moving story about an awe-inspiring, engaged and ultimately triumphant figure.

Andrew Manze made appearances with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2017 and 2021. The musicians enjoy being inspired by this enthusiastic conductor. Let yourself be swept away by the imagination of conductor Andrew Manze, soloists Arttu Kataja and Maximilian Schmitt, the Laurens Collegium Rotterdam and the Concertgebouworkest!
