Description

Klemperer’s conducting of the Brahms’s Requiem, one of the cornerstones of the choral repertoire, achieves true greatness. Gramophone Magazine said of his 1961 recording, ‘ a conductor who’s rugged feeling for the music pays colossal dividends’ sums up this 1956 account. Both Elisabeth Grummer (soprano) and Herman Prey (baritone) were internationally renowned and highly respected. This live studio recording from the WDR in Cologne has never been issued before.
