Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine (The Creation)
A splendid recording. Chorus and orchestra both sound large, which is what Haydn wanted, and both are in superb form, while the soloists are as good as in any other version and better than most. [... ]The playing of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is superlative. This music is in their blood and no praise can be too high for the glorious playing they give us all through ... Tom Krause has never done anything so good as this ... Werner Krenn is a most sensitive and poetic Uriel. He has a voice of beautiful lyrical quality, and phrases most musically. ... Fresh and youthful also is Elly Ameling's beautifully sung Gabriel. ... The Vienna State Opera Chorus sing superbly and with admirable enunciation of the words, and the balance of parts is excellent. They are obviously as much in love with their task as the rest. The highest praise must go to Mnnchinger for his inspired direction of the score.
Gramophone Magazine (Little Organ Mass)
The short Haydn Mass (less than a side) is a beauty; deeply felt and wonderfully expressed.
