Philippe Herreweghe is one of the finest and most perceptive Bach interpreters of our times, his performances full of warmth and spirituality.
He conducts some of the world’s best young singers and instrumentalists in two of Bach’s Leipzig cantatas for choir, soloists and orchestra alongside the rarely-heard Missa Brevis.
Intimate and elaborate, with solo instruments given the chance to shine alongside vocalists in arias ranging from sweet-toned confessional to heartfelt faith, this is music that illuminates and amplifies the universal expressions of grief, doubt, devotion and radiant joy.
