ICA holds a veritable treasure trove of historical recordings, the Cologne Broadcasts especially honing in on a rich period of performance in Germany. This stellar 1956 Berlioz Requiem is conducted by maestro Dimitri Mitropoulos, an exceptional musical mind and predecessor of Leonard Bernstein as music director of the New York Philharmonic. As added interest, this release features a young Nicolai Gedda as the tenor soloist in the Sanctus.

"...In summary, this recording confirms what anyone who has heard the Salzburg performance will know; Mitropoulos has the measure of this vast score and is able to convey its gaunt majesty, its beauty and its grandeur... their [the orchestra]playing throughout the performance is very good..."
 
John Quinn - MusicWeb-International.com - 10 January 2013

 "Dimitri Mitropoulos was best known in the US until late in his career, when he broadcast this deeply felt Requiem, still high-voltage despite mono sound ."  *****

Michael Scott Rohan - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes section) - September 2012
