Notes & Reviews:

These are rare live recordings from second generation transcriptions that have been remastered. The performances are from 1945 and 1950.

"The presence of a piano in the Brandenburg Concerto, strangely enough, seems not so much to date the performance as to give it a timeless air. The tempo in the first movement is pretty swift, the textures light, the pacing joyful and the interplay between the three soloists perfectly balanced. Annie Fischer’s passage-work suggests not so much the traditional pearls but a clear night sky full of shooting stars – my turn to be swoony-weepy. I’ve never heard the long cadenza so perfectly integrated into the rest of the movement. This is one of those occasions when a Klemperer-miracle has happened. The concept of “tempo”, fast or slow, disappears, for the music simply unfolds, suspended in time, from first note to last... Lovers of Klemperer and of Bach alike will need it." -MusicWeb-International

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
But as biographical documents these performances have interest, capturing the conductor at the nadir of his first career and at the beginning of his second. Klemperer was plainly in his manic phase when this Magnificat was recorded.
