Musical monument

Many hundreds of times Philippe Herreweghe has conducted the Passion of all Passions - that of Johann Sebastian Bach based on the words of the evangelist Matthew. Now he follows his longtime passion and leads his trusted Collegium Vocale Gent in a performance of this very Passion, which has become a musical monument in its moving reflection of the last hours of Jesus' life.

The musical and textual depiction of the Passion of Jesus Christ by the Leipzig Thomaskantor stands to this day as a singular work in music history. For it is all in one: a revolutionary piece that seemed predominantly antiquated to Bach's contemporaries and was only really discovered by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy in 1829. And it is orthodox Lutheran church music, which like hardly any other work of art is able to reach people of all denominations - indeed especially people without faith. For example, the philosopher who was soon to declare God dead: Friedrich Nietzsche. He thought that those who had completely forgotten Christianity would really hear it in the St. Matthew Passion like a gospel.
