Arleen Auger (Soprano), Ann Murray (Mezzo-soprano), Marjana Lipovsek (Contralto), Peter Schreier (Tenor), Anton Scharinger (Bass)
Rundfunkchor Leipzig
Staatskapelle Dresden

Bach’s Passions and other great choral works in performances with the Staatskapelle Dresden under the masterly direction of Peter Schreier who also sings the role of the Evangelist.

“Schreier’s aim in Bach interpretation is to bring new lightness without following the full dictates of authentic performance, and in this he succeeds superbly. The recording is first rate, with the choral forces well separated”. (St Matthew Passion)

“Schreier’s telling of the Crucifixion story is riveting in its variety of tone, expression and pace”.(St John Passion) The Penguin Guide
