Matthäus Passion Olga Zinovieva

360° Bach

In September 2022 Olga Zinovieva will be taking part in the ‘360° Bach’ tour. 

The idea of this series is that you, as a music lover, have a place as close as possible to the musicians. There are only 150 places.

You will listen to two humorous cantatas by Bach performed by soprano Olga Zinovieva, bass Thilo Dahlmann and tenor Martinus Leusink, accompanied by The Bach Ensemble of the Netherlands.

In the Peasant Cantata, a farmer (Thilo Dahlmann) and his wife Mieke (Olga Zinovieva) mock the unfair practices of the tax officer Dieskau. The composition is a real comedia dell árte! It consists of 24 parts based on folklore dances, songs and rhythms. The Boerencantata swings, it is expressive and precisely tailored to the text.
