Product Notes

Long considered one of the seminal works in the classical oratorio tradition, St. Matthew Passion by J.S. Bach also holds a strong connection with many to the Passion weeks. A part of the BR-KLASSIK WISSE/N (BR-Klassik Knowledge) audio book/music insight series, author Wieland Schmid gives us an introduction to the St. Matthew Passion, which clearly illustrates both the basic structural principles as well as looking over the composer's shoulder as he writes, instantly illuminating the way Bach used such a wide variety of means to translate the Biblical texts into music.

A thrilling journey through the St. Matthew Passion, which will appeal both to audio book and music fans. The musical examples are presented by the Choir and Symphony as well as the famed and history Regensburg Cathedral Sparrows boys' choir and led by Peter Dijkstra.

The narrator Christian Bruckner, is known for being the regular German dubbing voice for Robert de Niro, as well as dubbing for a number of other film roles and participating in a large collection of talking books.
