This review is from: Brahms: A German Requiem (Audio CD)
Definetly overpraised performance. There are splendid moments which are rather special (2nd movment), but this CD is not "only one to have" Deutsches Requiem. Sound itself is good for early 1960s when recording was made. Schwarzkopf singing is realy dissapointing. There is no phatos in her brief entry. Fischer-Dieskau and Chorus are much, much better. Buy this CD because it is historical document and there are some magical moments in this performance, but as I already said this performance is not "only one to have and cherish".
