Matthäus Passion BWV 244

Johann Sebastian Bach's St. Matthew Passion is one of the most important sacred works in the history of Western Music. It's hard to believe that following Bach's death it fell into oblivion until Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy initiated a veritable renaissance with his revival performance of the work by the Berliner Singakademie in 1829. With the new recording Frieder Bernius and his Kammerchor Stuttgart, together with the Barockorchester Stuttgart prove once again that they exceed the demands for the ideal combination to perform Bach's music with their fine and agile treatment of voices. These experts, multiple prizewinners for their historically informed performance practice master this monumental work with its delicate sound, which portrays the Passion of Christ through incomparable, emotional, and spiritual intensity. The choir and orchestra are joined by the outstanding soloists Hannah Morrison (soprano), Sophie Harmsen (alto), Tilman Lichdi (tenor), Peter Harvey (bass) and Christian Immler (Bass). The limited deluxe edition of this recording impresses with an extensive digibook format and features excellent SACD-recording technique.
