Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Jochum does little to follow modern performing practice; but if you accept that, you will think it very well done in its own way, for it is sincere and deeply-felt. I was heartened by the list of distinguished Dutch instrumental soloists who provide the continuo and obbligato parts, since they know a thing or two in Holland about baroque performance; but they, like the vocal soloists, are given little encouragement by the conductor.

the chorus, though it sounds rather larger than a younger conductor would like, is thoroughly well trained. Its ensemble is faultless and it is really alert, especially in the turba scenes. The soloists are an experienced set vocally and always good to hear; and if I maybe invidious, it is
Read more especially enjoyable to hear Alexander Young again—he is marvellously savage in his aria "Ach mein Sinn" and equally good later in the very different "Erwhge, wie sein blutgefarbter Rücken", with two viole d'amore where his breath control is marvellous. Franz Crass is also outstanding in his nobility of tone and his control of long passages."

-- Gramophone [4/1985]

 Sur cette interprétation August 1, 2012 By D. Ulmann (Vésenaz, Switzerland) See All My Reviews "Cette interprétation est sublime grâce à Ernst Haefliger qui fut le plus grand Evangéliste du XXe siècle. Une petite retennue pour les airs de ténor. Cette version est romantique car faite avant la révolution baroque. A avoir dans sa collection juste pour les récitatifs." Report Abuse
