J.S. Bach: St. Matthew Passion / Padmore, Harvey, Danz,Gijisbertsen, Neven. Ivan Fischer [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

This 2012 recording of the most wide spread oratorio by J.S. Bach features Hungarian conductor Iván Fischer with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. Fischer's believes the double choir is the essential musical aspect: "You can't do the St. Matthew in an unreligious way. The only approach is from a deep, universally religious feeling."
