CD releases

New recording of Bach’s St Matthew Passion

The Gaechinger Cantorey’s new CD recording with Hans-Christoph Rademann opens up new perspectives on J.S. Bach’s St Matthew Passion. The recording was made in November 2020, in the midst of the Corona crisis. The recording required "a maximum of concentration and of listening to each other," while at the same time there was "an unconditional devotion and freshness in the room," says conductor Hans-Christoph Rademann about the special situation of the recording.
