A Boy Called Alex: The Concert (2009)

A Boy Called Alex: The Concert

Following on from the Cutting Edge programme on the extraordinary talents of Alex Stobbs – Cambridge music scholar and cystic fibrosis sufferer – this film features highlights from the remarkable performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion conducted by Alex earlier this year at London’s Cadogan Hall.

Alex himself acts as the film’s commentator and guide, offering his uniquely personal perspective on Bach's epic work and the phenomenal musical challenges in conducting it. The music is performed by the distinguished Southbank Sinfonia and the renowned Rodolfus Choir, featuring soloists Michael Chance, Sarah Fox and Thomas Guthrie.
