Soloists: Miriam Feuersinger, soprano; Elvira Bill, alto; Patrick Grahl, tenor; Tobias Berndt, bass; Gotthold Schwarz, Jesus
Johann S. Bach, St Matthew Passion¸ BWV 244
One of the most challenging and daring creations of the Western musical tradition, the culmination of Baroque sacred music as a whole, and one of the greatest musical manifestations of religious creed and human devotion. The deeply spiritual theological and mystical symbolism, dramatic biblical themes and psychological insights of Bach's masterpiece transcend the roots of 18th-century Lutheran liturgical music to create a timeless musical meditation of epic proportions.
The stellar soloists joined by the pillars of Stuttgart's musical life – the virtuosic Chamber Choir and historically informed Court Chapel, under the baton of their founder, Frieder Bernius, a stylistically versatile conductor committed to authentic performance – promise a convincing delivery of this biblical tale about conscience, compassion, courage, acceptance and hope.
Miriam Feuersinger: a specialist in German music … the ideal voice for this kind of repertoire … the diction and articulation are flawless … expressive performances of the cantatas … the more lamenting parts come off impressively.
Musica Dei donum
Bernius’s St Matthew sets sail with an unforced and naturally inflected imagery, sustained by eloquent accompaniments and vocal contributions evangelising on the text with refreshing clarity and even a hint of asceticism. … The details of instrumental signposting are affectingly curated in impressive command of the score. … His attention to detail and ringing ensembles are among the best.
