Passions before Bach: there were many of them, little known today. But it is worth discovering that of Keiser, a major figure of his time, proclaimed ‘the honour of Germany’. Bach so admired him that he performed this St Mark Passion in Weimar, then chose to conduct it in Leipzig on two occasions. In this work, Keiser the operatic composer eloquently demonstrates his imagination and his sense of drama.
