St. Matthew Passion
Released: Dec 1993
Sung during the Easter holy week, St. Matthew Passion is one of Bach's most treasured sacred works. From the opening choral to the famous aria, this 1993 Naxos recording of the Hungarian State Opera and Symphony Orchestra is a surprising, clearly recorded and well-performed delight. Bass singer Peter Koves shines with emotion, control and excellent diction on "Mache dich…" among others.
