Ton Koopman

Widely accepted as a leading authority on Baroque music, Ton Koopman conducts J.S. Bach's Magnificat BWV 243 and the Magnificat of Johann Kuhnau - Bach's predecessor as cantor of the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. Performed by the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir joined by soloists Deborah Yorck (soprano), Bogna Bartosz (alto), Jörg Dürmüller (tenor) and Klaus Mertens (bass), the ensemble aptly illustrates the enormous skill and diversity in J.S Bach's music.
