Reviews

The superb BBC recording of the first Klemperer performance at Covent Garden in February 1961 in many ways even outshines his classic studio recording, so that the drama of the piece comes over the more vividly, with speeds generally a degree faster than in the studio [...] Vickers and Frick are if anything even more magnetic than in the studio recording [...] In the excellent Testament transfer the radio sound is astonishingly vivid, with the voices cleanly balanced even when the singers move around on stage.
