Edition 2015

Gabrieli Consort and Players, Paul McCreesh

Friday 03 april - 20h30

Grand Théâtre de Provence

On this Good Friday, Paul McCreesh and his Gabrieli Consort and Players perform the St Matthew Passion by Bach. A monumental piece, carried by a powerful breath, this work blends the most accomplished technique with an expressiveness that is in turn soothing or poignant in a constant balance between sovereign freedom and writing tradition. 

Dedicated to playing on period instruments and respecting the composer's intentions without falling into the constraints of specialisation, the Gabrieli Consort and Players have been – for many years now – one of the prominent British ensembles.
