Notes & Reviews:

In Spring 2015 the Academy of Ancient Music - described as "the finest period-instrument orchestra in the world" by Classic FM - releases a significant new recording of J.S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion, BWV244, directed from the harpsichord by Richard Egarr. Performed in the original 1727 version, and with a superlative roster of soloists, this recording is striking in its immediacy, clarity and directness, with numerous insightful and compelling details lost in subsequent versions. This release - the fourth on AAM Records - follows Birth of the Symphony: Handel to Haydn, named BBC Radio 3 "Disc of the Week" and awarded five stars in Classical Music; J.S. Bach's St. John Passion, which was nominated for a 2014 Gramophone Award for best baroque vocal recording; and J.S. Bach's Orchestral Suites, awarded five stars by Fine Music Magazine, and called "exceptional ... a feast of meaningfully understated musicianship" in an Editor's Choice review in Gramophone magazine. Supplementary materials available online include preview tracks and videos, as well as a digital booklet featuring session photographs and scholarly notes.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
In his booklet notes, Richard Egarr makes a case for performing the early version. This may influence the stage arrangement and the performers' relationship to the continuo. There are many differences in fine detail between the versions. As Egarr puts it, "The early version is less decorated, purer and stronger in gesture. In many cases the later musical lines are more highly decorated, smoother, and busier".
