Description

First version, first performed in Weimar around 1713 by J. S. Bach; from Bach's music library. Third version available under 35.502/00. Version of a performance at the Weimar court from around 1713 by J.S. Bach; from his library of music. "It has been proven that J. S. Bach studied the St. Mark Passion of Reinhard Keiser frequently and intensively. At least three performances of this work verify this fact. A new Carus edition presents the ‘Weimar’ version, since the material is almost complete. Keiser’s Passion is well suited for ‘normal’ conditions, with regard to length, difficulty and scoring. In every respect a rewarding representation of the Passion.”
