CPE Bach: St. Matthew Passion / Koopman, Amsterdam Baroque

Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This was one of the first substantial works C.P.E. Bach composed shortly after assuming the post of Music Director in Hamburg. No doubt influenced by the famous setting by his father, J.S. Bach, this music presents a more intimate approach, yet is equally compelling. This premiere recording is by one of today's most important Baroque specialists.
