Notes and Editorial Reviews

Agnes Giebel, Janet Baker, Nicolai Gedda, Hermann Prey, Franz Krass; BBC Chorus, New Philharmonia Orchestra/Otto Klemperer. EMI Classics CDMB 63364 [2 CDs]

Dated though his conception may be, Klemperer’s account of the B minor Mass has a majesty no other version quite matches. It proceeds from an ennobled, benevolent, Olympian view of the score, and while it sounds decidedly Romantic as a realization, conveys deep feeling and fully realizes the spirit behind the score. Klemperer’s chorus and soloists (Baker in particular) are warmly committed, and the playing of the New Philharmonia shows admirable polish. The recording, from 1967, is spacious if somewhat grainy in texture. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to
