About

In the St Matthew Passion, Johann Sebastian Bach created one of the most significant Protestant church music works. Frieder Bernius, together with the Kammerchor Stuttgart and the Barockorchester Stuttgart have now recorded this composition. These prize-winning experts of historically informed performance, with their filigree sound, master this monumental composition which portrays Christís passion with incomparable musical, spiritual and emotional intensity. With this new recording, the ensembles, together with renowned soloists including Tilman Lichdi, demonstrate once more that their fine, flexible lines make them ideal interpreters of Bachís music. Berniusís recording is based on the new edition by the acknowledged Bach expert Klaus Hofmann, published by Carus-Verlag. It is no secret that Bachís original score and parts were full of ambiguities and contradictions. Once again, Bernius sets new standards with respect to performance and artistry by following Hofmannís approach, who presented his edition in accordance with current findings of Bach research, taking into account numerous impulses contributed by historical performance practice.
