Notes & Reviews:
Not 'just any old Brahms Requiem', Kurt Masur of the New York Philharmonic offers a lightly-sprung, rhythmically buoyant interpretation of the Brahms Requiem that does not gloss over the tragic elements.
BBC Music Magazine, February 2013
Committed, heartfelt choral singing, impressive solos. But Masur's conducting too often skims the surface prosaically and the end effect isn't specially memorable.
Recording information: Avery Fisher Hall, New York (02/1995-04/1995).
