Alexandre Marr Plays Bach with Gréta Pásztor
Updated: Sep 20, 2020
An informal recording of Anderson and Roe’s transcription of “Erbarme Dich,” an alto aria from Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. Matthew Passion; a musical illustration of Peter’s lament after having denied Jesus three times. The translation of Bach’s aria reads:
“Have mercy, my God, for the sake of my tears! Look here, heart and eyes weep bitterly before You. Have mercy, have mercy!”
Playing with Gréta Pásztor is pure musical bliss.
