Notes and Editorial Reviews

The first two selections come from the June 1951 live recording at the Jesus-Christus-Kirche, in Berlin-Dahlem. Karl Ristenpart's chamber orchestra helped pioneer a sparer, more authentic Bach style. Fischer-Dieskau was ideally suited to this approach. These versions are fresher and almost as authoritative as later recordings with Richter. They must have sounded like a revelation at the time.
