For anyone afraid to step into the territory of recordings of one great composer's vision of another great composer's work - relax and get happy for here is one that really works. It's not just what Schumann brings out or adds but also how the performance and acoustic come together to make the St. John something darker and more mysterious. Schumann wrote that he saw greater poetry in the St. John than the St. Matthew and in addition to this performance drawing out the poetry it helps explain why he chose St. John to "Schumannize". Get this and have no reservations that you have St. John "produced" by Robert Schumann. Being extremely familiar with both period and classic performances I was bowled over by Schumann's take-so much so that I prefer listening to it to my favorites: Gardiner (his 1st), Parrott, Butt, Herreweghe, Veldhoven, Suzuki and Cleobury - all historically informed performances. What this performance lacks in perfection of intonation or choice of piano for a recitatif, lol, it more than makes up for by what Schumann brings out and adds to make plain the spirit of Bach which before Schumann in St. John was certainly inaccessible. (for the other reviewer to say that R. Schumann - the founder/editor of Die Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, idol of Brahms, first to publish a declaration of Chopin's genius, close friend of Mendelssohn and Liszt and husband of Clara Wieck Schumann (greatest female pianist of her day) - could misconstrue Bach to the degree of an abomination(????) IS...LUDICROUS.)

2.0 out of 5 stars An Abomination, but an Interesting One August 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you don't find twenty-some bucks an obstacle, this deformed monstrosity is worth hearing once as a part of musical history. I suppose that's what Baroque specialist Hermann Max had in mind in recording it. He took the principles of "historically informed performance" literally; this performance replicates the vocal styles, as far as we can assume what they were, of Robert Schumann's era. The chorus is enormously murky, as Romantic choruses probably were. The singers, even those brought over from 'Early Music', sing like church chorists; the women's voices are harsh and their tuning is lamentable. Piano accompaniment just doesn't 'cut the mustard' with Bach's recitativos; it's no wonder the one previous reviewer eliminated them from his private CD. One can't fault Robert Schumann for his efforts, though. A plausible, tasteful performance of Bach was something totally unaccessible in Schumann's lifetime. Thanks our lucky stars that we were born in the age of historically informed performance. Be warned: This "Passion" is to Bach's Johannes Passion as Grendel's Mother is to Petrarch's Laura. Even Glenn Gould at his most eccentric never misconstrued Bach so ludicrously.
