2.0 out of 5 stars Metronomic disappointment. 9 April 2013
By Andrew Thornley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My expectations of this recording were high having read the only review. True, the St Matthews is (along with the B Minor Mass) the height of Bach's sublime composing. So one hopes for perfection and often this is impossible to achieve in a single performance. I was generally satisfied with the Arias and Recitatives. It was the chorales that really saddened me. The Conductor has insisted, across the entire piece it appears, that the singers adopt a strongly rhythmic pulse to their singing, a device I can only call metronomic because I can almost hear the regular beat being pounded out in the voices of the singers in the way that a metronome (as intended) pierces ones head with each strike. The effect in the singing is to almost make one feel that you are rolling about in a boat heaving up and down with the heavily accentuated notes. In short, the magnificent opening and closing chorales, and many in between, lack that serene and majestic quality which I am sure is achieved in other versions of this great work. I am currently ordering an alternative performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime. 7 May 2012
By A. Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an occasion when one should believe the hype: Bach's Matthew Passion really is one of the most beautiful art works of all time. Each time one hears it one falls more deeply under its timeless spell. I've listened to several other interpretations, but a friend of mine, a Bach expert, scoffed at the idea that I would even consider listening to any recording other than this one by the late Gustav Leonhardt. So on his recommendation I bought it, and I have to say he was right. This recording is light, ethereal, heartfelt, profound and pretty well near divine. The music sounds as fresh, clear and innocent as if it fell from Bach's fingers this very morning, and so I have to thank my friend and share his opinion. Anyone looking for a definitive recording of this greatest of compositions has found it here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recording 3 May 2013
By Macaccus Rhesus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Late Gustav Leonhart and his orchestras do not need any introduction. I am used with Harnoncourt old version and for some reason this recording took 2-3 carefull auditions before it grew on me - I now like both equally
