Experience one of the supreme achievements of Western music performed by perhaps the best-known and most-recorded of all early music ensembles! Ton Koopman—the renowned elder statesman of the authentic performance movement—founded the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra in 1979 and imbues every performance with both boundless energy and rigorous standards of excellence and scholarship. Koopman and his distinguished forces are the supreme exponents at negotiating Bach's monumental celebration of both the joy of music making and hymn to the glory of God, expertly challenging the Mass in B minor's balance between intimacy and grandeur.
