Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. In its scale and gravitas, Otto Klemperer's interpretation of the St. Matthew Passion draws on the Bach performance style that developed in the 19th century, but its clarity, its underlying energy, and its superb array of soloists - singers with impeccable operatic credentials - also ensure that full justice is done to the drama of Bach's sublime retelling of the Gospel story.
