Catalogue Number: 04J088

Label: Coviello Classics

Reference: COV 40801

Format: CD

Price: $19.98

Description: Dating from 1950 this Passion is plainly Pepping's attempt to come to terms with German war-guilt and its "relentless intensity of expression" and "colorism", to use critic's descriptions of its premiere, are plainly evident. The composer's own less than sterling record during the Third Reich is discussed in depth in the most honest and detailed note ever to come from a German record company which is almost worth the cost of the disc itself. German-English texts. Berlin Radio Choir; Stefan Parkman. SACD hybrid.
