About

To follow the Christmas Oratorio, the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks under its artistic director Peter Dijkstra again present a major work by Johann Sebastian Bach, in a live recording on CD and DVD: the St Matthew Passion.

The choir's instrumental partner is the renowned period instrument group Concerto Köln, who can already be heard together with the choir on several BR-Klassik CDs (Handel: Israel in Egypt, Dixit Dominus; Bach: Magnificat).

Bach's epoch-making St Matthew's Passion can be heard in historically informed performance practice with the renowned Bach singer Julian Prégardien, the Regensburger Domspatzen and other well-known soloists. The DVD edition of this live recording from Munich's Herkulessaal features highly atmospheric lighting effects.

Live recording, Munich, Herkulessaal der Residenz, February 2013.
