Old school simple grand Bach

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The 1950 performance of the Magnificat stands alone in its invididuality. Its simplicity naturally evokes its grandeur.
The mono sound is acceptable and the singing is more operatic than sacred, but I guess that's the way things were done back in the day.
The two Orchestral Suites included are from 1949 and are chamber like but with a profound intensity. Klemperer understands his Bach!
Not a disc for everyone, only for serious Klemperer fans with a willing pocket for interest!
