St. Matthew Passion: Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht & Johannes Leertouwer
The St. Matthew Passion stands unquestionably among the most profound masterpieces of Baroque sacred music.
Beyond the two choirs and two orchestras, the sheer scope of Bach's musical genius reveals an almost divine inspiration. Baroque scene newcomer, the Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht, is already establishing itself as a revelation in its intense interpretation of the clarified version with one voice per part.
