At a special price: Bach’s Passions feat. Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars 4 DVD + 2 Blu-ray / linen edition

Available versions

Bach’s St. John Passion and St. Matthew Passion with Sir Simon Rattle and star director Peter Sellars have been landmarks in the history of the Berliner Philharmoniker in recent years. The DVD and Blu-ray editions of both productions are now available together at the special price of EUR 69.00. This offer is valid until 16 April.

The public and critics unanimously applauded the staging which made the spiritual and dramatic content of the Passion story even more intensive. The New York Times also praised the “brilliant and energetic” playing of the orchestra, and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung the “haunting, almost unsurpassable singing of all those involved”. The top-class ensemble of singers was led by Mark Padmore, one of the leading exponents of the role of the Evangelist of our day.
