JS Bach Journey 2017

In September, Gabrieli returned to the Thomaskirche in Leipzig for a performance of the St Matthew Passion as part of Martin Randall Travel’s JS Bach Journey 2017. Performing from the balcony where Bach himself performed, and using forces the great man would have recognised – single strings and voices across the work’s two orchestras and choirs – this was a pilgrimage for audience and artist alike, and a night not soon to be forgotten.
