Synopsis

Album Description
In 2010, Maestro Riccardo Chailly records Johann Sebastian Bach for Decca for the very first time with 3 releases. Having conducted the illustrious Gewandhaus Orchestra since 1986, this esteemed conductor's association with Leipzig is but one year less than Bach's. Chailly's profound musicality illuminates three of Bach's large-scale masterpieces: The St. Matthew Passion, the Brandenburg Concertos and the Christmas Oratorio. Played on modern instruments, Chailly's Bach beautifully demonstrates that vivid, stylistically aware performance is not the exclusive preserve of period instrument ensembles. The first release from this trilogy, the Brandenburg Concertos, showcases the Orchestra's expert soloists. Collectively, they celebrate the orchestra's renaissance under its charismatic Italian music director.
