Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45

Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45


Kerstin Lindberg-Torlind (soprano), Bernhard Sönnerstedt (baritone)

Stockholm Konsertförenings Orkester, Musikalista Sällskapet Kör, Wilhelm Furtwängler

“If you're interested in Furtwängler's views on the German Requiem, this is the performance to hear. Furtwängler led a reading of unusual intensity on this date. It's not that he emphasizes the music's contrasts, although these are given their due. It's more a matter of how he makes the music flow from one measure, phrase, section, and movement to the next; this is A German Requiem as a broad, inexorable river taking the listener to the peace of the afterlife. There is comfort here, but it never cloys or is sentimentalized. Strength provides the drama, not the application of sweetness or spurious effects. Although the two Swedish soloists are provincial, the chorus gives a strong, inspired performance, and the orchestra holds its own. Technical perfection won't be found here, but the missed notes and moments of ragged ensemble in no way detract from this reading.” Raymond Tuttle, Classical Net

Recorded 3rd January, 1959


Barbirolli conducted the New York Philharmonic from 1936 to 1943 and returned to New York in 1959 to conduct the orchestra in a series of concerts featuring English repertoire rarely heard by Americans. Here are the best performances of Sir John’s visit, previously unissued, in state-of-the-art digital restorations. Includes “Dream of Gerontius” with Richard Lewis, a very fine Gerontius.

“[Gerontius] anticipates the superlative studio recording Barbirolli and Lewis made together with Janet Baker five years later, though Maureen Forrester is a more than capable Angel here and the baritone, Morley Meredith, is arguably superior to his later equivalent...The mono sound is patchy but just about serviceable, but Barbirolli fans won't worry about that.” The Guardian, 23rd September 2010 ***

Camilla Wicks (violin)

Upheld by many as a queen amongst her peers, violinist Camilla Wicks led a stellar career in the dozen years following World War II. At the peak of her fame she retired from the concert stage to devote herself to her family. Upon resuming her career she remained an outstanding if intermittent performer for several more decades. Wicks made few commercial recordings besides a famed 1952 performance of the Sibelius Concerto. Now this precious set, spanning five decades and a vast range of repertoire, offers the most comprehensive collection of her concert performances ever likely to be assembled. It offers an in-depth insight into Wicks’ evolution from captivating, devil-may-care young virtuoso to profound interpreter. Music & Arts is pleased to make these great performances available for those who have long wished for Wicks’ discography to be expanded, and to enable a wider audience to be stirred by this extraordinary violinist and artist.
