Notes and Editorial Reviews

Johann Sebastian Bach’s two great Passions belong to the core repertoire of sacred music, and three more such works have either been lost, or have only survived as a fragment. All the more interesting, then, is this Passion Pasticcio based on a cantata by Graun, and containing in addition to chorale movements by Telemann, Altnikol and Kuhnau three original movements by Bach himself. The 1991 recording of this delightful work conducted by Hermann Max was one of the highlights of the legendary Electrola series baroque special.
