The Netherlands Chamber Choir heralds the festive season with its annual tradition: the performance of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, this year with the French Les Talens Lyriques.
Johann Sebastian Bach St. Matthew Passion
Netherlands Chamber Choir (Nederlands Kamerkoor)
Peter Dijkstra chief conductor
soloists to be announced
It is not for nothing that the St Matthew Passion is a household name in the Netherlands. Bach’s version of this age-old passion possesses a universal beauty that touches on themes that are as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago. After two years of deafening silence in the Netherlands around Easter, the Nederlands Kamerkoor, the Residentie Orkest of The Hague and the Pieterskerk Leiden are now once more joining forces to let the music be heard again. This year the performance will be led by the chief conductor of the Nederlands Kamerkoor, Peter Dijkstra.
