5.0 out of 5 stars A German Requiem, by Brahms. Conductor: Marin Alsop
A superb performance of this Requiem - I loved it. It was also a very good price for such a new recording.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor recording of good performance
Marin Alsop opines that the German Requiem is not a dirge, and creates a lively and enjoyable interpretation.

The recording level on this production is unusually low, so that one has to turn the volume up quite a lot to hear it. Unfortunately, the sound quality is very poor, sounding extremely muffled. It is just about tolerable when played over loudspeakers,...

It is just about tolerable when played over loudspeakers, but over headphones the technical problems really get in the way.

This is the first time I have bought a recording from Naxos, and I think it will be the last too. Not to be recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like Marin Allsop [and have been conducted by her]. Musically this is a good interpretation. But unfortunately it is a very poor recording. I don't know the technical terms - it just seems very distant and I have to have the volume turned very high which just seems to make it flat. Not a good buy!
