Product Description

The magnificent series of complete Bach cantatas by Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque is crowned here with their definitive recording of Bach’s greatest choral work, the Passion According to St. Matthew, available both as an audio CD recording and a DVD video. The musical Passion, a form introduced in Protestant churches on Good Friday by about 1700, was brought to its highest point of perfection by Bach in this work, first performed in 1727. Under Bach, the Passion performances became the musical highpoint of the church year in Leipzig. He appears to have composed five Passions, but only two survive. In any case, even in his day the St. Matthew Passion was universally regarded as the greatest of them. The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, founded in 1979 by Ton Koopman, is a group of musicians from all over the world with a particular passion for the Baroque. Their recordings have won numerous awards. The Amsterdam Baroque Choir was founded in 1992. The choir consists mainly of young Dutch professional singers. Born in Zwolle, Holland, in 1944, Ton Koopman decided very early in his musical studies to specialize in the 17th and 18th centuries, using authentic instruments combined with a performing style based on sound scholarship. Koopman’s extensive activities as a soloist and conductor have been recorded on a large number of LPs and CDs for labels including Erato, Teldec, Philips and Deutsche Grammophon. Begun in 1994, Koopman’s Bach Cantata series was called "the recording project of the nineties" by The Guardian, and was awarded the 1997 Deutsche Schallplattenpreis "Echo Klassik". As with the cantata series, this album includes the scholarly contributions of Professor Christoph Wolff, one of the world’s leading experts on the music of Bach. Recorded in March 2005 at St. Joris Church, Amersfoort, before a live audience.
