Description
For this historic 1950 recording featuring the RIAS Chamber Choir and Chamber Orchestra, Karl Ristenpart engaged leading Bach singers of the time as soloists—including Helmut Krebs and Agnes Giebel—thus ensuring that the recitatives of the Evangelist, the arias, and the ensembles were of particularly high quality. The resulting recording represents Bach interpretation of that era yet heralds later trends in historically informed performance practice.

"While the choirs are responsive to text and music, greater pleasure derives from the solo contributions of Charlotte Wolf-Matthaus and Helmut Krebs. The most admired Evangelist of his generation, Krebs's singing is clearly articulated, lyrical and authoritative."—BBC Music (4 stars)

"Ristenpart was a remarkable Bach conductor, truly years ahead of his time…. Stylish, wise and worthwhile hearing."—Musicweb International

"An important testament to the complexity of interpretative currents in Bach performance."—International Record Review
