Notes & Reviews:

Bach's St. Matthew Passion, according to the arrangement by Felix Mendelssohn dating from 1841, graces this splendid live recording. The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, with Chief Conductor Jan Willem de Vriend, has expanded its repertoire to cover music from four centuries. The use of period instruments in the Classical repertoire gives the orchestra a distinctive and highly individual character.
