Description
One of the cornerstones of western music, J.S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion is a musical rendering of the betrayal, trial, and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Technically sophisticated and emotionally complex, it is an epic work that can prove daunting to new listeners. Victor Lederer examines the diverse influences that shaped the Passion, and clarifies the intricate relationship between the music and its scriptural basis. The history of the work's performances is also included, from its premiere to total neglect, and its eventual rediscovery.
