5.0 out of 5 stars Karajan at his best! 13 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a superb account of this Choral masterpiece from the mid-seventies and re-mastered in digital sound.
For somebody who prefers the more traditional style of conducting and playing of Mozart's works, they don't come much better than this!
One can forgive the rather big and full sound generated by the BPO, in typical Karajan style, as opposed to the more recent brigade of period instrument ensembles and generally fast tempi.
Despite this the recording is well balanced and the soloists, chorus and orchestral playing are all top grade.
If you like the interpretations given by Harnoncourt, Hoggward and alike then give this a try and you will find just how good the previous generation of conductors really were....

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fine big band Mozart Requiem 22 Feb 2013
By Bacchus TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have reviewed Karajan's 1962 recording of Mozart's Requiem and found that other listeners have been rather uncomplimentary about it. Listening to this generally well thought of performance from 1976 side by side with the 1962 one has been fascinating.

I find it hard to believe that the performances were directed by the same person. In 1962, the performance was lyrical, smooth and rather leaden at times. In 1976, it was much more hard driven and exciting. However, I do occasionally feel that some of the sheer beauty and charm of the music has been lost in taking such a direct approach.

In 1962, the choir sounded as if it had been recorded too distantly with a resultant loss of bite and a bit too much wooliness of sound. The 1976 choir (it was the Vienna Singverein on both recordings) has been recorded with far more presence. They are so much more 'there' in this recording, almost too much if anything.

In my recording of the 1962 recording, I was quite impressed with the soloists with the possible exception of Wilma Lipp, the soprano. In the 1976 recording, Anna Tomowa Sintow sings radiantly, a wonderfully creamy singer very much in the vein of Gundula Janowitz. Agnes Baltsa (another Karajan favourite) is equally wonderful in the alto solos. The other two soloists, Werner Krenn and Jose van Dam sing well but for me, the soloists from 1962 were far better. However, I would add that the 4 soloists together make a marvellous team.

It has been a fascinating comparison. Both performances have much to offer but in the final analysis neither is the performance one dreams about hearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely outstanding! 19 Jan 2013
By cogs
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This piece is by far one of my favourites, and Karajan most definitely does it justice. I would recommend it to any choral or even opera lover as it has a depth and intricacy to it that very few pieces posses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to be rated with the finest readings 1 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD
As much as I value Gardiner, Colin Davis, Mackerras recordings, this is an equally inspirational reading catching Karajan in some of his finest Mozart conducting on disc. The soloists, orchestra and recording are superb.
