This is a very straightforwardly filmed performance of Bach¿s masterpiece . . . Richter generates such enormous cumulative power in the wave upon wave of sound in that and some of the other huge movements that they have all the effect of incontestable geometric proofs, ending with a mighty QED which makes even the hardiest anti-believer (I speak for myself) temporarily wonder whether Beauty hasn¿t here generated Truth . . . The soloists are in the top rank, without giving the impression of being stars. Gundula Janowitz, of course, normally sounds more like an instrument than a voice, and that is entirely suitable for what she sings here . . . Hermann Prey is a genial presence, praising god by showing how happy he is . . . I felt the exaltation of this amazing work from the first blazing chord to the last, the climax of the `Dona nobis pacem¿, which must be a prime candidate for the status of being the greatest four minutes of music ever written.

Cuerdas, maderas y metales forman una perfecta urdimbre para mostrar, a través de unas brillantes texturas sonoras, la profunda espiritualidad de esta obra. El cuarteto solista cuenta con la presencia de la soprano Gundula Janowitz, que despliega su magnífica vocalidad ... en los dúos con la excelente contralto Hertha Tóper ... Magnífico en todos los conceptos el barítono Hermann Prey ... Esplendidas intervenciones del coro.

Lo que desprende su interpretación es un concepto claro, una idea muy determinada de lo que quiere conseguirse, a la que se amoldan coro, orquesta y solistas (excepcionales Janowitz y Prey) gracias a las instrucciones de un Richter que irradia autoridad.
