In his day, Karl Richter was considered a Bach ‘specialist. There are few Bach performances on record as compelling as this. Richter’s direction evinces a profound understanding of how Bach’s theological convictions informed his musico-dramatic treatment of the Passion story. If Lear and Töpper are less than idiomatic Bach singers, they project the texts of their arias with passionate conviction, and that counts for more, in the end, than stylistic accuracy.

As Thomaskantor Johann Sebastian Bach provided Passion music for Good Friday services in Leipzig. The extant St Matthew Passion and St John Passion are Passion oratorios composed by Bach. According to his "Nekrolog", the 1754 obituary written by Johann Friedrich Agricola and the composer's son Carl Philipp Emanuel, Bach wrote "five Passions, of which one is for double chorus". The double chorus one is easily identified as the St Matthew Passion

Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). Karl Richter leads the Munich Bach Orchestra and Chorus in a slow but steady, not sluggish, performance that brings out the full emotional impact of one of Bach's most deeply personal works. One could not ask for a better Evangelist than Peter Schreier. I've heard may smaller choirs sound much less focused than the Munich Bach Choir. All of the soloists are as good as any I've heard in this music.
