Another re-discovery from the archives of the Academy of Song in Berlin: Capriccio presents Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s St. Mark’s Passion written in 1786 as a world premiere. Conducted by the very capable Joshard Daus, the EuropaChorAkademie he founded sings, accompanied by the Mendelssohn Symphonia. Thomas Dewald once more sings the part of the evangelist as in Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s St. John’s Passion (Capriccio set of 2 CDs 60 103) and in the St. Matthew’s Passion written in 1785 (Capriccio set of 1 CD 60 113). This work by the composer written when he was 72 years old shows his skills to be quite at the height of contemporary fashion. Instead of emotional arias, the solo pieces are kept short and song-like, in a stark contrast to the famous Passion music works written by the father.
