This review is from: Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem (German Requiem) (SDG: SDG706) (Audio CD)
John Eliot Gardiner seems to polarise people - folk seem either to love him or hate him. I know him from his Bach cantata recordings, having collected the entire set. But Brahms? I enjoyed his symphonies by Gardiner, but I know little about the Deutsches Requiem, so this was a speculative purchase. I enjoyed it thoroughly. A recording of a live performance, as are most Gardiner recordings, I found it quite thrilling. The Schütz choral pieces that are also on the CD are also excellent. The Monteverdis and the Big Gardiner Band are in top form. I can't compare it with anyone else's Deutsches Requiem, because I haven't heard anyone else's, but taken on its own, I found it really excellent both musically and performance-wise and would recommend a listen.
