5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great performance in an updated remastering 11 octobre 2005
Par Santa Fe Listener - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This is EMI's curent remastering of Klemperer's classic B minor Mass from 1967. Along with Klemperer's St. Matthew Passion, this recording was the summit of what he could do in Bach. The vocal soloists are wonderful, especially the women led by Janet Baker. In retrospect these were the best Bach singers in Europe, and the ones we hear on period performances from Gardiner and Herrenweghe, among others, are inferior by comparison. Over and over we now get accomplished vocal technicians without spiritual involvement in Bach's passionate Protestantism (blessed exceptions being Lorraine Hunt Lieberson and Thomas Quasthoff).

The Philharmonia Chorus, trained by the legendary Wilhelm Pitz (who also led the Bayreuth Festival chorus) at this time was probably the best in the world. Klemperer's tempos are stately but full of life in their inward way, and the overall experience fills one with Bach's sense of joyful worship.

P.S. 2011 -- For anyone who is of an age or inclination to enjoy such old-fashioned grandeur and reverence in Bach, there are two other stereo versions of the B minor Mass that are pendants to this one. The first, under Karajan, dates from the same period of mid-Sixties and is distinctly more polished -- some might say overly polished -- with equally prominent opera singers as soloists. There are drawbacks to the sound on both the Klemperer and Karajan, the large choruses being particularly fuzzy, so there's little to choose between them. For a huge cathedral sound coupled with superb musicality, there is a live account under Giulini, taped by the BBC in 1972 (on BBC Legends). It is gentler than either of its rivals, and although live, the performance is of studio quality. One glitch may be the vast space of St. Paul's Cathedral, where the reverberation time is several seconds more than any concert hall, but the engineers have done a good job handling that.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MIRACLE!!! 28 septembre 2003

This ranks as one of the greatest recordings in the history of our time. The BBC chorus is outstanding and the soloists sing with incredible strength and feeling. This set must be on a shelf in every single household, in every home, for all times.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great spiritual depth and powerful architecture. 6 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is the kind of approach that "authenticists" will loath, particularly regarding the broad tempi and the massive conception (although Klemperer uses a comparatively small choir and orchestra -at least small for 1967). I have seen adjectives such as "victorian", "portentous" or "sanctimonious" attached to this kind of interpretation. The "authenticists" underline elements of instrumentation, size and style, but forget about a dimension which is absolutely essential in the Mass in B Minor: "spiritual authenticity". Bach's music is the product of a man of faith who dedicated all his works to the glory of God. These are the depths reached by an interpreter like Klemperer. You must listen to his Mass in B Minor not as great piece of baroque music (which it certainly is) but above all as a timeless expression of devout faith. All the formal and technical elements are important but ultimately peripheral. Like St. Peter's in Rome, Klemperer's Bach in B Minor is monumental (in the right sense of the word). And like St Peter's you need a certain perspective to appreciate it. It is built in large blocks and it takes time (like the versions by Jochum and Giulini). But the results are overwhelmingly powerful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dignified Bach 12 février 2008
Par Johannes Climacus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Though hardly a Baroque "specialist," Klemperer was one of the greatest Bach interpreters of his generation. Do not expect from him the brisk tempos, energetic rhythms and light textures of current period performance practice. If you are not used to more traditional Bach interpretations, patience may be called for. But patience will be rewarded, for Klemperer's dignified conception of the B-Minor Mass is little short of awe-inspiring.

Klemperer's success in this work hinges on his ability to convey a sense of mystery without introducing gratuitous expressive gestures such as sudden dynamic shifts or manipulation of tempo within a movement. For the most part, he maintains a rock-steady pulse and long-breathed lines, while managing effortlessly to highlight contrapuntal detail along the way. His subtle inflection of voice-leading even in the denser thickets of Bach's polyphonic textures is masterly. In fact, no conductor I have heard in this work clarifies texture and structure better than Klemperer.

There are some drawbacks. Klemperer is better at conveying majesty than rambustious joy and thus certain movements are wanting in vitality, particularly "Gloria in excelsis Deo," "Cum Sancto Spiritu," and "Osanna in excelsis." One does want more rhythmic spring, too, in movements such as "Laudamus Te" and "Et in unum Dominum." His chorus manages to articulate well for a relatively large group, though they don't achieve anything like the clarity and agility of which today's early-music ensembles are capable. I must also note that by this stage in his career, Klemperer was not always able to exert perfect control over his forces, so that there are moments of un-coordinated ensemble and a few other slips here and there.

In the end, however, these drawbacks recede to insignificance when compared with Klemperer's overall achievement in this work. Throughout, he has the benefit of superb vocal and instrumental soloists to assist him. Among the former, Janet Baker, Agnes Giebel, and Franz Crass are outstanding; for some, their contribution alone will be worth the price of admission. The recording, which was originally rather opaque on LP, has been transformed in this digital remastering, so that the sonics now convey a greater sense of presence and amplitude.

Adventurous listeners who enjoy exploring historic recordings, and who have an open mind when it comes to stylistic matters, will find that this is one to treasure. Bach with dignity is seldom encountered on the fast lane of the contemporary early-music scene, and for that reason Klemperer's version of the B-minor Mass provides an invaluable and refreshing supplement to whatever early-music renditions of the work you may already own.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brillant and gloriuos performance with a great Bach!s conductor 15 juillet 2009
Par Marcelo Uzcategui - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Many years ago I had heard some versions of the Bach!s Mass in B minor, one of them was performed with the St Martin in the fields conducted by Neville Mariner, that I consider is an excelent version of this work as well, but for those circumstances of the life when I was in Warsaw Poland(1991) in a friend!s house enjoying some drinkings and music, he put a LP version of Klemperer Bach!s Mass, and suddenly my face was transfigured listening the openning chorus of the "Kyrie" with its great strenght and brightness, inmediately my mind was iluminated imaging a great barroque cathedral decorated with great columns an altar all made in gold, and I said to me I have never heard this music and I need to have it, so I bought it in Londres at that time this magnificent version.
The role BBC chorus and the soloits is excelent and outsatnding,specially The alto (soprano II) Janet Baker in her arias. We have to remember that Bach composed this magnificent work when he was 48 years old in a musical mature age after having composed his passions and his "magnificat" , so he used all the orchetral forces of that time including oboes di amore, bassoons, 3 trumpets and horns which he does not use in his majors vocal works excep in the "magnificat".It is more, the opening chorus "Kyrie"is configured for five vocal parts(SSATB). The "gloria in excelsis" is an exultant five chorus as well with three trumpets and timpani, in the same way the structure of the "Credo" and the magnificent "Sanctus" conceived for six part chorus (SSAATB) and full orchestra,and some of the arias were adapted taken from more that his two hundred cantatas.

Kemplerer always cosidered that this Catholic Mass, is the major magnificent and gloriuos work of the Leipzig!s Kantor, so he puts in this interpretation all his feith and passion as a conductor, furtheremore he was a pupil of Mahler so he knew very well all resources in orchestral and vocal music interpretation, so Kemplerer beethoven!s symphonies and Bach!s music have been always acclaimed in the last and also in this century by the mucical critics.

Finally I want to say that in Kemplerer!s last interpretation ocurrs the same phenomenon as Bernstein to atchieve the exact tempo of some very special musical masterpieces.To me that is exactly the tempo for conducting.The sound is very good to be recorded around the 70.
If you have a modern and puritan versions, it does not matter, buy this one you will not be disappoited.
