Product description

"Though it isn't a genuine Bach work, those who love his music will want to investigate the St Luke Passion. In terms of scale, rhetorical intensity, structural and stylistic sophistication, musical invention and artistic ambition generally, it finds no common ground with his two extant Passions. But there's much that's intimate and touching about it. The meditative element comes less from contemplative arias than from a continuous and freshly fashioned narrative, although the arias, with their favoured wind obbligato parts, are often skilled and affecting. Wolfgang Helbich and his Bremen forces pitch the dramatic climate just about right throughout. Smoothly articulated, unmannered and technically accomplished, the chorales and turba scenes are especially well judged. The Evangelist, Rufus Müller, conveys the Gospel with soft-grained clarity and understated dignity and the other soloists do more than justice to the six arias."

5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing work! I can happily add this to my ... 5 Dec. 2016
By Mitchell David Boucher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What an amazing work! I can happily add this to my collection----I have copies of all the Passions now. BWV 244, 245, 247, and now 246.

Helbich's choir and ensemble are amazing! I believe that this passion is one of Bach's first large-scale works, and his first attempt at Passion-writing. I know that it's up for debate if this is really his work, or if he took it from someone else, or if someone else helped him in its composition---which is possible. I feel like the small chorales are definitely his work----and possibly a few, or all of the arias. 'Den Fels hat Moses' is incredibly catchy, as are the two settings of 'Aus der Tiefen'. Mendelssohn stated that this work could not be by Bach, as the score he found seemed to be 'too clean; he must've copied it from someone'. If anyone, perhaps it was one of his relatives, or maybe Telemann.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly light and yet suffering is everpresent 31 Mar. 2004
By Dr Jacques COULARDEAU - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is said to be apocryphal and I am not entirely sure it really is. It keeps the originalities of Saint Luke's gospel. It keeps the general structure of Bach's passions, but it pushes it into an extreme coloration. In fact it is very close to Saint Mark's passion in its structure, very didactic though even more. But Saint Mark's Passion and Saint's Luke Passion stand apart from the others by this didactism, this heavy presence of chorals, reduced presence of arias and even of choruses. It is another style in a way, for a congregation that cannot have a rich chorus and numerous singers. It is for a congregation that considers a passion is not a show but a rite and they have to take part. Mark and Luke hence stand apart from John and Matthew that require a heavy presence of professional musicians and singers, especially Matthew that has two choruses in the score. But the rendition of this Saint Luke's Passion by the Bremen musicians and singers insist on the baroque side of Bach's music which makes it different from other interpretations that respect a less baroque tradition, which is traditionally accepted for Bach. In other words the music and the singing of this passion by these artists sound at times French or even Italian, clear and light in many ways. The crowds, or the soldiers, or the high priests are rejoicing in the suffering described in front of them. They are not cynical in their tone, just enjoying the circus games they get free on the day before the celebration of Passover. It is a tone we are not used to with Bach. It is surprising and yet, why should Bach be different from the other musicians of his time, or even from other non religious pieces of his ? I find this interpretation interesting and maybe inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Du Gibst Mir Blut 19 April 2002
By R. Gerard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Only two numbers in this Lukasspassion were written by Bach. The Chorale/Aria "Aus Der Tiefe" was written by Bach and appears in another cantata whose BWV I do not remember. The first recit in Part two was also written by Bach. It is unknown how many numbers can be attributed to his son Carl Phillip who helped his father copy this piece.
This is nonetheless a very good recording. The sound is clear and the choir and orchestra are fully awake (not like many historically-informed ensembles).
While it is less imaginative than other Passions you might be familiar with (St. Matthew or St. John perhaps) this is still worth adding to your collection.
This passion is full of chorales, and arias are sparse. But the first aria, "Du Gibst Mir Blut" is a real attention grabber, a little bit like a small-scale "Ebarme Dich".
Since it is clearly by another man (on stylistic grounds) and it was copied in Bach's handwriting with a couple of numbers of his own to add, my guess is that Bach and his son may have reorchestrated this work, changed a few things around, and did other editions to this Lukaspassion by another composer... just like what Mozart did to Haendel's Messiah or what Mendelsohn did to Bach's St. Matthew Passion.
This is not typical Bach music, but it is highly recommended and will trigger your imagination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Passion -- Probably not by Bach 14 Mar. 2001
By Paul C. Stratman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This performance of the "Apocryphal" St. Luke Passion is performed in a light and fresh manner. It is thouroughly enjoyable. The work is most likely not by Bach. If it is, he wrote it when he was very young. (Handwriting analysis suggests the manuscript was copied by Bach and his son, later in his life.) The composer's taste is not as mature as Bach's in his genuine St. John and St. Matthew Passions. (The opening chorus, "Fear and trembling . . ." is way too upbeat and happy.) The recitatives sound very much like Bach. The chorales are similar to Bach, but the melodies are slightly different from those used by Bach in his Passions. I would reccomend this recording to those who like Bach's Passions, and who are curious about works that have been attributed to him. Great performance, great recording!
