CARL PHILIPP EMANUEL BACH (1714-1788): Markus Passion.
Catalogue Number: 09L036
Label: Ars Musici
Description: Unlike all of Bach's other Passion settings, which were part of the Berlin Singakademie archive plundered by the Red Army and which were discovered in Kiev only in 2000, this one was found among the papers of a German musicologist in 1985. Stylistically, it's like all the others which have now been recorded but, unlike the only other Markus Passion (which Capriccio offered a couple of years ago), this one's complete. 2 CDs. Martina Bovet (soprano), Dorthee Labusch (alto), Gerd Türk, Peter Sigrist (tenors), Rainer Pachner, René Koch (basses), Knabenkantorei Basel, Ensemble ad Fontes; Beat Raaflaub. Original 1994 release.
