4.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly reliable and enjoyable performance 14 May 2010
By Mr. Ian A. Macfarlane TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Just briefly - I've had this CD of the German Requiem for many years. At its very modest cost it is thoroughly recommendable. The sound is very good, the choir sings with fullness and precision, tempi are well-judged and the two soloists are both fine, particularly the baritone, Edward Tumagian. I've recently lent it to a friend who was singing the work with the local choral union ; she tells me that it is a good deal better than her own much more prestigious version, which in comparison she found sluggish and low-key. I don't really know why I am not giving it five stars - only, probably, because there probably are better versions out there. But it is good, avoids the danger of ponderousness, keeps the music moving and does full justice to it. I would recommend it with enthusiasm.

4.0 out of 5 stars a bit smooth, but great soloists 17 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
Can soloists make or break a recording of Brahms's "Deutsches Requiem"? I'm not sure, but they make a difference. Robert Spano's Telarc account has it over Previn in orchestral presence and liveliness of phrasing, and it has a large chorus that sounds very good. Previn's recording sounds a bit more recessed, though the sound is warm and not overly homogenized, and his smaller choir, the Ambrosian Singers, are very good and are recorded without congestion. However, it's a bit slow, especially in the last two sections, and the phrasing is a bit too smooth and uncharacterful, where Spano seems to relish a more deliberate shaping and energizing. But Previn isn't bad at all -- the piece has the right devotional spirit. Most of all, it has perhaps the best exponents of the solo parts on record. Samuel Ramey, the best bass America has produced, is caught here in his prime, and though the part lies a bit high for him, he dispatches it with great tone, great feeling and total confidence. And Margaret Price -- just one of the premier singers of her generation. She has no problem with the wicked tessitura, and her singing allows the listener to hear the shape of the soprano lines, instead of hoping that she'll just get through it. It's a lovely performance, preferable even to Jessye Norman's fine account. Spano's soloists, by contrast, are perhaps the weak spots in his recording.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit quiet. 9 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a good performance, no complaints there. But it seems very quiet and I have to turn my stereo up a lot to hear it properly, (which then means the next item I play is deafening, if I haven't thought to turn it down again).

A chilling piece of music. Used by the BBC to powerful effect in their documentary "The Nazis - A lesson from history".
