Notes and Editorial Reviews

Walter's Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem is a powerful, expressive and emotionally cohesive reading, the sombre "Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras" permeated with a feeling of foreboding... The coupling, Mildred Miller's rather cool version of the Alto Rhapsody, is in excellent 1961 stereo...

-- Gramophone [8/1995]
