Another in the laudable series of EMI 96/24 remasters of its older catalog material. This is a 1965 recording with Otto Klemperer, the New Philharmonia Orchestra, and various soloists. Downloaded from HDtracks. Perhaps not quite as 'classic' a recording as his Brahms German Requiem is, it's nevertheless very worthy. The graphs look good! Russell
And here we have one of the greatest recordings ever made of Mahler's late masterwork, with the incomparable Fritz Wunderlich and lustrous Christa Ludwig as soloists, Otto Klemperer conducting. Recorded in the early/mid 1960's, this is another EMI 96/24 remaster, downloaded from HDtracks. The EMI 'Great Recordings of the Century' RBCD already sounded wonderful; this should be even better!

This is the classic, monumental 1961 recording of Brahms's 'Ein deutsches Requiem' with Otto Klemperer and the Philharmonia Orchestra & Chorus on EMI, part of that label's recent batch of 96/24 remasterings of its back catalog. Downloaded from HDtracks. The graphs here (of the 2nd movement) look great, and they show that even 50-year-old analog tapes have a good deal of dynamics and frequency extension. Russell
