    Program

    After having presented us his newly-reconstructed version of the ‎‎St ‎Mark ‎Passion<‎‏/‏em‏>, ‏this time Jordi Savall offers us a recreation of the ‎‏<‏em‏>‏St ‎Matthew ‎Passion‏<‏‎/em> that dramatises the suffering and death of Christ according to ‎the ‎Gospel of St Matthew, based on the autograph score written in 1736 by Bach, where ‎he ‎included important amendments to the second version from 1729 (the original score of ‎the ‎first performance in 1727 was lost). Under Savall’s direction we will revisit it once ‎again, ‎thanks to the representation of the infinite musical dialogue between the voices ‎and ‎instruments of the two choirs and two orchestras, and with all the Ariosos ‎of the ‎sacramental words of Christ, who offers the chalice to his disciples (‘This is my blood’) ‎as well ‎as the cruel rhythm of the flagellation. We recall that the true ‘renaissance’ of early ‎music ‎began with the new presentation of this work, conducted by Felix Mendelssohn in ‎Berlin, on ‎‎11 March 1829.‎
