The Cantemus Choir of Nyíregyháza will once again be an active participant in the international tour of the world-famous Budapest Festival Orchestra. The tour will continous on 25 March, 2024 at the MüPA in Budapest with the title COMPASSION – J. S. BACH’S MASSIA-PASSIONA AND OTHER SENTIMONIES!

“The framework of the concert is Bach’s St. Matthew Passion but, in addition to the story of Jesus’ suffering, we also express our compassion for other innocent victims,” says Iván Fischer, summing up the concept of the concert, which is called Compassion. About half of Bach’s most extended work will be performed in this concert. After the opening chorus, at the first key point in the story, the BFO immediately inserts a climactic interlude that responds to our present, followed again by Bach, and so on. The result: a colorful, allusive, living musical reflection on the world. The Passion will be performed by the Cantemus Mixed Choir and exceptional international soloists. – on the BFZ website!


The tour includes 6 events at Müpa Budapest and Várkert Bazaar!
