St Matthew Passion
Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra | Dome Concert Hall, Brighton
Conducted by Robert Howarth
With Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra, a stellar cast of solo singers and the brilliant conductor and harpsichordist Robert Howarth, this is an event in the calendar not to be missed.
The searing story of Christ’s betrayal, Last Supper, arrest and death is wrapped in some of Bach’s greatest and most moving music: it can be noble, passionate, tragic, intimate and ultimately meditative. It’s tour de force for every performer onstage.James Oxley: Evangelist Matthew Brook: Christus Lisa Howarth: soprano Patrick Terry: countertenor Guy Cutting: tenor Ashley Riches: bass Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra Brighton Festival Chorus
