We think that Bach’s St John Passion is just as beautiful as its brother St Matthew (and a great deal shorter!) Once again the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra is working alongside Cappella Amsterdam, one of the best chamber choirs in the Netherlands, for the traditional Easter concerts. The piece will be conducted by choirmaster Daniel Reuss.

The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra

The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra was formed in 1955, since when its rich history has included many notable achievements. Even after the merger with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra in 1985, the ensemble lost none of its unique identity. The dynamics between the members of the orchestra are particularly striking. They rarely play under the baton of a conductor but interact with each other almost instinctively. There is a remarkable chemistry, as is apparent during every performance. Gordan Nikolić has been the leader, or ‘concertmaster’, of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra since 2004.
