Keiser's St Mark Passion
maestro_mek | Sweden | 08/12/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This recording is the only one I have found on this wonderful piece. I give it two stars just because Keiser's music is so wonderful and makes the recording worth listening to. However, the ensemble are not playing good, nor is the soloists good. They have a female alto for the solo parts, which includes several male roles such as Judas, High Priest etc. This makes it sound rather funny. The choice of tempi is bad and the overall interpretation of the piece is unfortunately very weak. Buy this recording just because there isn't any other; but be prepared on a bad performance."
