Comment:
From the cover notes: "What has astonished me over and over again is the extra clarity of the Klemperer over most versions using fewer players... A conductor like Klemperer does almost inevitably achieve a far higher standard of discipline than is possible with even a perfectly homogeneous group of chamber players... Klemperer, then, for those who want clarity and precision as well, of course, as the sober maturity of a great musician s view of these works. For Klemperer at his best hear the third movement of No. 1 and the first movement of No. 4, the solo playing breathtakingly polished and exact... My acid test is whether I go on playing a disc after the review is safely in the post. That is certainly what has happened since last month with Klemperer s set of the Brandenburg Concertos... I now realise how often I am going to get this satisfying set off the shelf in preference to other versions. - Edward Greenfield in "The Gramophone"
