C.P.E. Bach’s oratorio-in-all-but-name builds in color and intensity as it progresses in this performance - sympathetic, beautifully-played and well-sung. Höchstwertung: 5 Sterne
... In all, this is a powerful and important work. ... In Die Letzten Leiden des Erlösers Haenchen and his orchestra do C.P.E.’s music full justice, performing with verve and color. They obviously believe in this music fervently. ...
For the C.P.E. Bach enthusiast, this recording is a must, and if you’re unfamiliar with his choral music, this would be an excellent place to start an acquaintanceship.
