Under the direction of Peter Dijkstra from 2005 to 2016, the Bavarian Radio Choir re-established its reputation as an exciting vocal ensemble and made Dijkstra a much sought after conductor. An avid fan of different repertoires and extremely deft in transiting from polyphony to a cappella for 21st-century works, Dijkstra also stands out for his renditions of Bach’s greatest works. Acclaimed for his St John Passion, he has also recorded Christmas Oratorio, praised for the choir’s “crystal-clear sound” and “amazing three-dimensionality”. It is part of this monumental work that he will direct in front of the Gulbenkian Choir and Orchestra.
