About the album

Koopman's Second Passion of St. Matthew: Passion plays became the musical high points of the church year in Leipzig under Bach. That fact that the Passion of St. Matthew can still overwhelm audiences today is without a doubt. Ton Koopman decided - after the first recording at ERATO more than 10 years ago - to record this masterpiece once again and consequently to put his experience with intensive involvement with the complete cantata by Bach into it. The result could not be more convincing in picture and sound, not the least thanks to the excellent soloists, who are much more well-balanced than the first time. 

Ton Koopman and his alternative Weihnachtsoratorium in Christmas Cantatas!


image Sunday next op NPO 2 on TV: Podium Witteman with only Christmas music! Ton Koopman and his Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir will be there and they give us an alternative Weihnachtsoratorium of Bach extracted from the Cantatas. What better way to enjoy a Christmas Sunday!
