Johann Sebastian Bach’s Saint Mark Passion is part of the catalogue compiled by his son Carl Philip Emanuel. The piece was performed on March 23, 1731 in Saint-Thomas of Leipzig, two years after Saint Matthew. Though the performance is well-documented, the music has completely disappeared, with only a libretto by Picander from 1744 remaining. It is therefore the interpreter’s task to recreate the piece, using older compositions. This is what Jordi Savall managed to do in the “pasticcio” manner used by Bach himself when he composed such masterpieces as Christmas Oratorio de Noël and Mass in B Minor.


The process is tricky because even though it relies on a precise musicological study, the result remains just a hypothesis. This recording is not the first attempt, and others have tried before with varying efficiency and authenticity. What we know for sure is that Bach wanted his Saint Mark to sound different, with less choir and more choral, which was familiar to the audience.


In his work, Jordi Savall used the 1744 libretto. He found inspiration in Funeral OdeSaint John’s Passion, and Matthew, as well as in a few cantatas. Jordi Savall offers a new light and an original “recomposition” of the piece. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Album Description

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Saint Mark Passion is part of the catalogue compiled by his son Carl Philip Emanuel. The piece was performed on March 23, 1731 in Saint-Thomas of Leipzig, two years after Saint Matthew. Though the performance is well-documented, the music has completely disappeared, with only a libretto by Picander from 1744 remaining. It is therefore the interpreter’s task to recreate the piece, using older compositions. This is what Jordi Savall managed to do in the “pasticcio” manner used by Bach himself when he composed such masterpieces as Christmas Oratorio de Noël and Mass in B Minor.


The process is tricky because even though it relies on a precise musicological study, the result remains just a hypothesis. This recording is not the first attempt, and others have tried before with varying efficiency and authenticity. What we know for sure is that Bach wanted his Saint Mark to sound different, with less choir and more choral, which was familiar to the audience.


In his work, Jordi Savall used the 1744 libretto. He found inspiration in Funeral OdeSaint John’s Passion, and Matthew, as well as in a few cantatas. Jordi Savall offers a new light and an original “recomposition” of the piece. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.

Jorge Bolet, the Epitome of Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt’s music re-emerged in the early 1980’s and for once it was played in a way that was both poetic and lyrical, rather than simply getting the notes out. Jorge Bolet recorded a ground-breaking anthology of the Hungarian composer for DECCA, as well as other recordings for the Spanish label ENSAYO, for RCA in the 1970’s, for EVEREST in 1960, and studio and radio recordings in the 1950’s.
