It is no surprise that Sir Simon would one day tackle this most comprehensive of Bach’s compositions in view of his much applauded interpretation of the St. John Passion in 2006. The Berliner Morgenpost wrote at the time: “A performance of this musical calibre renders superfluous all questions about authenticity and historical performance practice. At the Philharmonie Sir Simon Rattle and his orchestra performed the St. John Passion […] with highly concentrated and flawless beauty devoid of any distorting indulgence.”

German daily Die Welt hailed this performance of the St. Matthew Passion as “Simon Rattle’s Easter miracle,” and The Guardian in the UK wrote: “I challenge you not to be an emotional wreck by the end of it: the singers, especially Mark Padmore as the Evangelist, give the performance of their lives; Sellars sensitively connects the Passion story with the performances and the audience, without distorting Bach’s drama; and Rattle and his players are collectively raised to spooky, spiritual levels of inspiration.”

Bonus feature includes a conversation between Peter Sellars and Simon Halsey, conductor of the Rundfunkchor Berlin

Reviews: 'The follow-up [to the St. Matthew Passion], Mr. Sellars’s “St. John Passion,” has been eagerly anticipated. Granted a luxurious amount of rehearsal and a nearly intact cast from the “Matthew” performances … the simmering performance lives up to the high expectations. … The Philharmonic was lucky to have once more the tenor Mark Padmore, one of the great Evangelists of our time, and superb here.' –The New York Times

'Sellars is an intrinsically 'musical' director…Williams's Christ all but steals the show - even alongside tenor Mark Padmore whose Evangelist fearlessly interrogates as well as interprets the narrative…this St John Passion has a thought a thought-provoking and unsettling authenticity that can be overwhelming.' –BBC Music Magazine
