Notes & Reviews:

"...Richter (is) at the height of his powers at this time. Committed to the spirit inhabited by his famous predecessor at St. Thomas's and steeped in the intense resolute Lutheran culture, he exhibits something of an unselfconscious obsession to deliver Bach's greatest drama with profound expression." -Gramophone
