St. Matthew Passion Poster

The 2014-2015 Season

J.S. Bach, The Passion According to St. Matthew
Sunday, March 29th at 3:00pm
Murchison Performing Arts Center (University of North Texas)
Probably first performed in 1727, the St. Matthew Passion is generally regarded as one of the highest achievements in Western musical art, though the revival efforts of Felix Mendelssohn over 100 years later played an integral role in securing Bach’s legacy. Given the magnitude and profundity of the work, the paraphrased words of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe seem most appropriate: “Bach allows us to hear all of creation, as if the eternal harmony were conversing with itself.” We are proud to present this masterpiece in its entirety and share its sublime inspiration with the Denton community.
