April 19, 2014:

Bach’s St. Matthew Passion

Bach's St. Matthew Passion is said to be that composer's ultimate masterpiece. It requires large musical forces, yet it has been recorded from the mid-1930s on to the present. Some historic recordings of this work feature such soloists as the famous contralto Kathleen Ferrier, and some recordings are conducted by such maestros as Serge Koussevitzky and such renowned composers as Ralph Vaughan Williams. I'll sample some of the older recordings of this masterpiece.
