CONCERT CANCELLATION: November 21 / 22

Among the performers for last night’s scheduled “St. Matthew Passion” by Johann Sebastian Bach in the Herkulessaal, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, one ensemble member tested positive for the Corona virus. With a view to protecting the audience and ensemble members, Bayerischer Rundfunk has decided to cancel at short notice both the guest performance at the Vienna Musikverein on Sunday, Nov. 21, 11 a.m., and the concert on Monday, Nov. 22, 6 p.m., at the Isarphilharmonie in Munich. The Vienna Musikverein will contact ticket holders directly. Ticket holders at the Isarphilharmonie will be refunded the value of the cancelled concerts and will be informed as soon as possible.


ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

“The Mount Everest of music”: that’s what American stage director Peter Sellar’s once called Bach’s St Matthew Passion. Now Simon Rattle will scale this summit of western music with his future Munich ensembles, the BRSO and the Bavarian Radio Chorus. The choice team of vocal soloists likewise raises expectations. A key role is conferred upon the Evangelist, who not only relates the story of the Passion, but participates in and responds to it inwardly as a witness. With British tenor Mark Padmore this part will be taken by one of the most charismatic Evangelists of our time. For the BRSO it marks a happy reunion with a longstanding artistic friend – and a former artist-in-residence.
