The Art of BACH = Arr. by Kurtag – Greg Anderson & Elizabeth Joy Roe, pianos/ Augustin Hadelich, violin – Steinway & Sons
Piano duo Anderson & Roe compress the “total” Bach experience into a dazzling and devotional selection of the Master’s musical styles.
A top flight recording of Bach’s monumental opus performed as well as any on the market today.
BACH: St. John Passion – soloists/ Polyphony/ Orch. of the Age of Enlightenment/ Stephen Layton – Hyperion (2 CDs)
This could be my favorite St. John Passion to date—it is certainly the equal to any other out there.
A period performance using modern instruments, right in Bach’s home parish.
BACH: St. Matthew Passion – Solosts/ The Netherlands Bach Society/ Kampen Boys Choir/ Jos van Veldhoven – Channel Classics (3 SACDs)
Channel Classics’ surround-sound recording of the Passion is an artistic and sonic experience of the first order.
