In classical music, I do not know anything more sublime, meaningful, profound and spiritual than Bach’s works. Bach is a colossus; his music contains a universal element that is all-embracing. As the Russian poet Joseph Brodsky said, “In every piece of music there is Bach, in each of us there is God.”
Bach was a person who combined a magnificent and unsurpassed skill in composition: rare diversity, melodic beauty and very profound spirituality. Bach’s music, filled with spiritual symbolism and spiritual content, is relevant for people of all times. His music will never become obsolete because it touches the central themes of human life.
Bach’s music is deeply mystical because it is based on an experience of prayer and ministry to God which transcends confessional boundaries and is the heritage of all humanity. His music is permeated by a feeling of love of God, of standing in God’s presence, of awe before Him. One can say that music for him was the worship of God.

Press reviews

The Guardian

“Alice Coote’s many admirers will be grateful to have her performance in Mahler’s great song-symphony documented in a carefully made studio recording [for PENTATONE], for she has emerged over the past few years as one of the finest mezzo interpreters of Das Lied von der Erde around … exquisitely coloured; every word matters, and the sadness that pervades the mezzo songs in particular is conveyed without it ever becoming self-conscious or sentimental.”
