BERNSTEIN: CHICHESTER PSALMS
JANÁČEK: GLAGOLITISCHE MESSE
Herkulessaal

The name Leonard Bernstein evokes for many his musicals. For the composer’s 100th birthday the Münchner Motettenchor sings his electrifying and swinging Chichester Psalms.

Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass, based on the old Slawonian text of the mass, combines 8-voice choirs and a virtuosic organ solo to produce monumental sound effects, interspersed with tender, lyrical episodes.

BACH: ST JOHN PASSION
Matthäuskirche

Bach’s Johannes-Passion, which the Motettenchor sings on Good Friday in the Matthäuskirche, enthralls the listener with the dramatic depiction of the passion events. The expression of the choruses and chorales, the recitatives and arias changes between revolution and hatred, prayer and belief. The biblical happenings can be experienced as a gripping dispute between the individual and the mass.
