Nikolaus Harnoncourt - JS Bach: St Matthew Passion
Catalogue No.: 0190295023287
Release Date: 5th March 2021
Multipack 3CD, original liner notes in English, German & French
“A unique statement, one that can’t fail to make an impression. Recorded in the sumptuous acoustic of the Jesuitenkirche in Vienna, there’s a detectable flavour of southern European oratorio, ebulliently theatrical, immediate and free-breathing (…). This is the most culturally alert reading in years and a truly original and illuminating experience.” Gramophone
This recording won a Grammy Award of Best Choral Performance and a Diapason d’or de l’année in 2001, and it’s one of the 100 Greatest Recordings from Gramophone: an absolute landmark of Bach’s masterpiece, the Saint Matthew Passion.
We are reissuing this legendary recording in standard packaging, without enhanced CD (the previous reissue 0825646434725 was too expensive to remanufacture and we will now have again the very nice original cover from 0685738103621).
