Notes & Reviews:

With the St. John Passion the triad of Schtz's settings of the Passion, i.e., all of these settings are now available within the framework of the complete recording of Schtz's works by the Dresdner Kammerchor under the direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann. The Passions are testimony to Schtz's highly musical artistic asperations, they are works of his old age and maturity with which an entire musical epoch reaches its conclusion. For today's listener getting involved with this music, with its artistic reduction of means can lead to a significant musical-aesthetic experience. Purely a cappella singing insures a special, intimate and impressive listening experience, but it demands of the performers perfect intonation and a flawless rendering of the text - a challenge in which soloists Jan Kobow, Harry van der Kamp (the Evangelist), and Jesus, as well as the Dresdner Kammerchor succeed in the most impressive style and manner. This recording of the Passion is complimented by the Litania, "Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison," the motet for the Last Supper, "Unser Herr Jesus Christus in der Nacht, da er verraten ward" SWV 495 and by the gospel dialog, "Ach Herr, du Sohn Davids" SWV appendix 2. A co-production with MDR Figaro.
