John Nelson, Werner Güra, Stephen Morscheck, Lucy Crowe, Christine Rice, Nicholas Phan, Matthew Brook, Bertrand Grunewald John Nelson Soli Deo Gloria's DVD of the St. Matthew Passion, which will be released in February, is exceptional for its musical depth and high-definition clarity. Filmed in the breathtaking Gothic Basilica of Saint-Denis, just outside Paris, extraordinary musicians bring the profound drama to life, capturing Bach's brilliant intensity in the narrative sung by the Evangelist, the words of Jesus and his disciples, and the expressive reflections of the chorus. "Bach's St. Matthew Passion tells the greatest story ever told with unequaled perception and power. It is the most moving of all sacred works, the crème de la crème, the very high point of Western classical music." John Nelson, conductor. "Nelson is a practiced hand at the 'St. Matthew'... [with] a deep and sensitive understanding of what gives this music its unique spiritual resonance and urgent dramatic power." Chicago Tribune. Filmed live in the Basilica of Saint-Denis, during the 2011 Saint-Denis Festival, with 7 HDTV cameras. Directed by Louise Narboni. REPERTOIRE: Johann Sebastian Bach: St. Matthew Passion BONUS: Documentary video "John Nelson's Saint Matthew Passion—The Journey," directed by Louise Narboni, 52 minutes, showing rehearsals and interviews with John Nelson.
