Bach: St. Matthew Passion / Schreier, Adam, Vogel, R. & E. Mauersburger, Dresden Kreuzchor, Thomanerchor Leipzig, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig
Similar to the outstanding recording of the Christmas Oratorio, this recording of the St. Matthew Passion, made in 1975, brings together a Who's Who of the Saxon music scene. In a unique collaboration of the Mauersberger brothers, who were at the same time the cantors of the Dresden Kreuzchor and the Thomanerchor Leipzig, they unite the two choirs rich in tradition with the great soloists of their time: from Adele Stolte and Annelies Burmeister to Theo Adam and Peter Schreier. Thomanerchor Leipzig boasts a tradition of more than 800 years in music and city history, a widely acknowledged contemporary reputation, and almost one hundred boys and young men with individual personalities and a common passion for music, framed by a unique future-oriented cultural and educational landscape. The Dresdner Kreuzchor is the boys' choir of the Kreuzkirche in Dresden, Germany. It has a seven-century history and a world-wide reputation. Today, the choir has about 150 members between the ages of 9 and 19, from Dresden and the surrounding region. The boys attend the Kreuzschule in Dresden. They are also called "Kruzianer".
