The Salzburger Bachchor sings with both energy and commitment throughout the performance and the Bach Consort Wien matches their effort with precise, spirited playing under the knowing hand of conductor Rubén Dubrovsky. He opts to deliver a lively though never rushed version of this masterpiece. Clearly, he knows the score inside and out and thus guides his singers and the chorus and orchestra with a vision of the score that focuses more on its brilliance and color than on its profundities and religiosity. And that is a perfectly valid take on this work.
