Why on earth did Yorkshire Baroque Soloists decide to record Bach’s St Matthew Passion in NCEM in September 2014? What did YBS feel they had to offer the already large list of impressive recordings that were available?
Professor Peter Seymour will answer these and other questions in this illustrated lecture. He will explain why he needed to make a new edition from 18th century manuscripts; what’s different about this earlier version which YBS chose to record? What were the multitude of performance and recording decisions to be made; how did it all work out?
Come and hear for yourself!
