Notes & Reviews:

Richters interpretation reaches the true sense of greatness and tragedy of this epic work. Rather than attempting to imitate Bach as it would have been heard in his own time, soloists Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Hertha Töpper and Ernst Haefliger rise to Richter's challenge and deliver a glorious performance that insists that the potential of this divine music is beyond any restraints of history.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Once upon a time, musicians had no qualms about making The Greatest Story Ever Told sound like the most imposing music ever written. This Richter recording of the St Matthew - his first - comes from those bygone days. Once known as DG Archiv 439338, it has been reborn on Profil. Our Bach Overview (Nov/Dec 1997) listed it among the preferred Big Band St Matthews, and on that select roster it definitely remains: an expansive, gut-wrenching ascent up Bach's musical Everest that, despite some stumbles, is still a powerful voyage of spiritual discovery.
