In February 2024, this magnificent, monumental cantata is being programmed once more – now under the direction of none other than Riccardo Chailly. Sir John Eliot Gardiner is again travelling to Amsterdam with his Monteverdi Choir, this time to perform Brahms’s German Requiem. And around Easter, the orchestra will be performing Bach’s St John Passion.
