In 2015, the Sebastians and TENET’s spectacular performance of Bach’s St. John Passion was called “a riveting example, easily the most compelling of the recent spate of New York performances [of the St. John Passion]” by The New York Times. In 2019, the groups are teaming up again to present Bach’s even more stunning St. Matthew Passion, which features two orchestras and two group of vocal soloists! This unconducted performance features an exceptional orchestra and cast of singers, and it is truly the highlight of our season—a MUST-SEE for all New York music-lovers. Jeffrey Grossman will lead the two ensembles from the chamber organ with tenor Aaron Sheehan as the Evangelist and Tyler Duncan as Jesus. Daniel S. Lee leads the first orchestra and Nicholas DiEugenio the second, for a special experience: the St. Matthew Passion as chamber music.
Grammy Award-winning tenor Aaron Sheehan is regarded as a first-rate singer of oratorios and cantatas. His performances have been praised as for their “shining quality and deep sensitivity” (The New York Times) and “finely nuanced” (Gramophone), and past performances as the Evangelist were hailed as “superb” (ClassicalVoice.org), and “quite simply astounding!” (San Francisco Classical Voice).
