Notes and Editorial Reviews

“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.
