“The performance of Gardiner immediately grabbed the audience' attention by an exceptional attention to every detail, every precious element in the score, emphasizing on grace and delicacy. Above all and with much intelligence, the conductor chose to eliminate any tinsel of grandeur and bombast to bring across the pathos of Bach’s text.” 

Corriere Fiorentino – review Francesco Ermini Polacci

“Only a single gesture is needed from Gardiner for his incredible forces of the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists and the impeccable boys of the ‘Trinity Choir’ to deliver the necessary drama.”

Giornale della musica – review written by Elisabetta Torselli

“This has become the most fluid, fresh and moving live performance of the St. Matthew Passion we have ever heard.”
