Bach, J S: St Matthew Passion, BWV244

Bach, J S: St Matthew Passion, BWV244


Johannes Chum (Evangelist), Hanno Müller-Brachmann (Jesus), Christina Landshamer (soprano), Marie-Claude Chappuis (alto), Maximilian Schmitt (tenor), Thomas Quasthoff (bass) & Klaus Häger (Pilate, Peter, Judas)

Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Thomanerchor Leipzig & Thomanerchor Leipzig, Riccardo Chailly

The great orchestra of Bach's own city of Leipzig in a glorious new recording of his choral masterpiece.

Played on modern instruments, Chailly’s Bach beautifully demonstrates that vivid, stylistically aware performance is not the exclusive preserve of period instrument ensembles.

Distinguished German vocal soloists, including acclaimed bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff, rise gloriously to the challenges of Bach’s exalted score.

The choir parts are thrillingly sung by two of Germany's most celebrated boys' choirs - the Thomanerchor Leipzig and the Tölzer Knabenchor.

On 2 CDs (most recordings are on 3 CDs).

Released for Easter 2010.

Part of a trio of Bach releases that also includes the Brandenburg Concertos (January 2010) and Christmas Oratorio (November 2010).

“Here’s Bach’s great Easter Passion straight from Bach’s heartland, Leipzig, with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, St Thomas’s Boys Choir, and an ease of delivery that can come only when you breathe in the composer every day. Conducting, Chailly lets the music speak.” The Times, 27th March 2010 ****

“Riccardo Chailly's new recording nods to the weight of tradition yet the purposeful, rosy, Victorian bloom of his orchestra is lightly applied. Tempi are fleet, lilting; the attack of the local boys' choirs sharp and delicate; the voices of the soloists cool and direct.” The Independent on Sunday, 4th April 2010

“Chailly has assimilated a historically informed performing style, but his interpretation bristles with drama, thanks to the gripping narrative of his Evangelist, Johannes Chum...Yet it is the contribution of the two choirs, and Chailly’s devoted conducting, that make the issue special” Sunday Times, 4th April 2010 ****

“There is some accomplished solo singing, and the part of Christ is taken with...intensity by Hanno Müller-Brachmann...Thomas Quasthoff has a lovely presence” BBC Music Magazine, June 2010 **

“The Leipzig Gewandhausorchester's brilliant sound dances in Riccardo Chailly's jubilant recording of Bach's Christmas Oratorio. The choral singing is lithe from the Dresdner Kammerchor. Bass Konstantin Wolff leads a well-balanced and characterful quintet of vocal soloists, with soprano Carolyn Sampson sounding peach-sweet in her arias...A joy from start to finish.” The Independent on Sunday, 19th December 2010

“very recommendable indeed. The balance is excellent, as is immediately shown in the opening double chorus...and there is an ideally wide range of dynamics between soloists and chorus, so the effect is very real, with a fine bloom on the solo voices...Chailly's pacing is freshly resilient and the refined orchestal playing often has the lightest touch.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio (highlights)


Ingeborg Danz (alto), Martin Petzold (tenor)

St Thomas’s Boys Choir Leipzig, Gewandhausorchester, Georg Christoph Biller

For centuries, the sound of Christmas has been imagined as the music of the angels – and the grand choruses of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio glow with this festivity and joyful brilliance. In short: everything that is associated with Christmas is captured in sound in this piece.

“Excerpt from Bach's Christmas Oratorio, the highlight being the vibrant sound of the Thomanerchor, the all-boy choir of the church where Bach was cantor. Classy support from the Gewandhausorchester.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014 ****

Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232


Reglint Bühler (soprano), Susanne Krumbiegel (mezzo‐soprano), Susanne Langner (alto), Martin Lattke (tenor) & Markus Flaig (bass)

Thomanerchor Leipzig & Freiburger Barockorchester (playing on authentic period instruments), Georg Christoph Biller

The Mass in B Minor, Bach's last completed vocal work as well as the climax of his creativity, reveals the overwhelming wealth of his compositional skills. In the history of music it ranks highly, as the "Montblanc of church music" (Franz Liszt) ‐ composed during Bach's time as cantor at the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. Performed in this important composer’s domain, the Mass in B Minor casted a spell over its listeners as the crowning glory of the Leipzig Bach Festival in 2013: Under the direction of Bach's successor Georg Christoph Biller, the St. Thomas Boys Choir and an outstanding soloist quintet perform with the prestigious Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, playing on authentic period instruments.

“The Thomanerchor is superb. Trebles match the confidence and facility of any adult choir...The Freibarockorchester matches their fluency and stylistic sensitivity...In the arias, the communication between instruments and voices is striking” BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 *****

“while this may not be the most authoritative account of this much-loved work, the sense of occasion that a live recording imparts is palpable; so, for that matter, is the sense of focused music-making, tempered by a discreet but distinct camaraderie...Sound and visuals function well.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2014
