Reviews

…this is a majestic reading of the mighty German Requiem… Albrecht and his mighty forces do this watershed work proud.
The Observer

Gerd Albrecht… leads his responsive Danish Radio forces through a reading which isnt afraid to be forceful as well as reflective.
BBC Music Magazine

…a spacious, beautifully paced and unshowy account of Brahmss German Requiem with clean, fresh textures and choral singing of impeccable intonation…
Hi-Fi News

'What sets this performance apart from most others are the comparative lightness of its orchestral and choral sonority, transparency of its texture and utter avoidance of stodgy sentimentality… In short this is a warmly recommended release'
International Record Review

'It is gorgeously recorded and captured in that sumptuous sound that Chandos has become famous for. The Danish forces under Gerd Albrecht are magnificent, and Bo Skovus is possessed of one of those Scandinavian tones that are rich, full and sensuous, a perfect match for the darkness of his part. Soprano Inger-Dam Jensen is extremely moving in the touching 'memorial' movement, 'Ihr habt nur Traurigkeit' (she actually brought a lump to my throat), and she blends seamlessly with the choir.'
