4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Hilton Bennett on 3 Mar 2013
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Otto Klemperer with his Philharmonia Orchestra - both at their peak - and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau! Anything less than five stars borders on the criminally insane!

Ok, that's over the top. Admittedly I am (surprise, surprise) very fond of Klemperer and the Philharmonia sound. I listened to and bought his reading of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis. After a few listens I saw why Beethoven himself held this work in such high esteem. Buying his Brahms Requiem seemed a no-brainer.

If you enjoy other recordings of Klemperer and his Philharmonia (EMI Bruckner, Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn) I can virtually guarantee that this work will win you over. The same rich, warm sound, perfect balance and timing are all there.

The sound is also very good given it's vintage and the choral is stunningly - the stuff that at the right volume will have the hair on the back of your neck standing up.

Fischer-Diskau sounds his usual smooth, faultless self (albeit a bit distant) and Schwarzkopf chimes in with a performance that has none of her later "warbling" - some of her last recordings remind me more of a car alarm that a soprano. But not on this work. She is beautiful.

This is a recording that, for me, shows how classical music is at the pinnacle of music as an art form and a spiritual experience. Buy yourself a priceless piece of timeless musical art at a ridiculously low price

Format: Audio CD
a short review. obviously the most memorable passage from this requiem is track 2 'Denn alles Fleisch es ist wie Gras'. for anyone wanting, or indeed needing to hear this as if conducted by solti conducting wagner. then this is the one for you. i have heard this work by gardiner (too mellow) rattle (forgetful-like all his other conducting) and abbado (not bad if truth be told)
but, if, when you hear this piece, you want the heavens to open up and the sky to fall. there is only one klemperer.

Peerless recording of classic status 9 Jan 2013
By YIP Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This recording is justly famous. The soloists, choir, orchestra and Klemperer were in one mind to bring out the true spirit of Brahms and the work. The recording is still excellent, Fisher-Dieskau is incomparable here. Desert Island disc.

Great disc. One of Otto Klemperer's finest works of conducting. 10 Dec 2012

I love this recording. I kind of wish they had produced it with the full original jacket with cover painting. But in any case its great.
