Rene Jacobs presents Telemann Brockes-Passion

harmonia mundi
harmonia mundi
The narrative of Christs Passion as retold by Barthold Brockes (a dominant figure in early 18th-century German literature) is of such dramatic power that it was set to music by 13 different composers (including Handel, Keiser, and Mattheson)!
Telemanns version, premiered on 2 April 1716, became so famous that J. S. Bach, no immature youngster at the time, copied it out in full 23 years later . . .
René Jacobs has striven to restore this quite extraordinary score to life in all its rich complexity.
