“The new recording about which everyone is talking comes from France, which over the last few years has grown to be the guiding spirit of early music and has embraced the überprotestant Bach .”

“Injustice, betrayal, love, self-sacrifice, sadness: Bach’s St Matthew Passion is a timeless human masterpiece according to conductor Raphael Pichon. And he shares that with you in his hyper virtuoso and deeply considered recording.”
