I believe that is Lulu's final Act 3 Todesschrei that is depicted there....

Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

This is the one I return to (in fact the only one I have nowadays). The singers, as val says, are not the finest (in fact very rough in places); the sound is poor. But it's truly searing stuff.

For Lulu, too, earlier recordings are the best. For instance
