Notes & Reviews:

The German music journal Fono Forum said of Rilling's Elias, "Helmuth Rilling realizes the stylistic span of the choirs from an ascetic a cappella to an impressionistic coloration, an almost Brahmsian Sentiment, and even up to a dramatic intensity. The orchestra is their equal. High-caliber soloists are thoroughly convincing."

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Rilling, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday, established a fine reputation with his Bach performances. This is very much a concert performance - incisive and dramatic. This is a fine job. SchSfer and Schade do well with their lyric voices. The GSchinger Kantorei is first rate, and the orchestra is fine as well. In short, this is a fine recording if you want the piece in German.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
Rilling's 1994 German-language performance is clean-edged though somewhat distanced by the sound quality.
