Bach: Matthäus-Passion. Carus Choir Coach

Johann Sebastian Bach

St. Matthew Passion

BWV 244

Description

While the choir has less to sing in the St. Matthew Passion than in the St. John Passion, but the writing for double choir and the divisi voices associated with it presents a greater demand for tonal certainty by each individual singer. The chorus "Sind Blitze und Donner" is especially challenging, in which both choirs display a virtuoso battle with coloratura and entrances offset in syncopation. Here one can only be secure by practicing the music in a slow tempo.


The Carus Choir Coach offers choir singers the unique opportunity to study and learn their own, individual choral parts within the context of the sound of the entire choir and orchestra. For every vocal range a separate CD containing each choir part is available. The CD is based on recorded interpretations by renowned artists who have performed the work from carefully prepared Carus Urtext editions. Each choir part is presented in three different versions:
  • Original recording
  • Coach: each part is accompanied by the piano, with the original recording sounding in the background
  • Coach in slow mode: the tempo of the coach slows down to 70% of the original version – through this reduction passages can be learned more effectively..
