Product Notes

In Spring 2015 the Academy of Ancient Music - Described As the Finest Period-Instrument Orchestra in the World By Classic FM - Releases a Significant New Recording of J.S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion, BWV244, Directed from the Harpsichord By Richard Egarr. Performed in the Original 1727 Version, and with a Superlative Roster of Soloists, This Recording Is Striking in It's Immediacy, Clarity and Directness, with Numerous Insightful and Compelling Details Lost in Subsequent Versions. This Release - the Fourth on Aam Records - Follows Birth of the Symphony: Handel to Haydn, Named BBC Radio 3 Disc of the Week and Awarded Five Stars in Classical Music; J.S. Bach's St. John Passion, Which Was Nominated for a 2014 Gramophone Award for Best Baroque Vocal Recording; and J.S. Bach's Orchestral Suites, Awarded Five Stars By Fine Music Magazine, and Called Exceptional... A Feast of Meaningfully Understated Musicianship in An Editor's Choice Review in Gramophone Magazine. Supplementary Materials Available Online Include Preview Tracks and Videos, As Well As a Digital Booklet Featuring Session Photographs and Scholarly Notes.
