Another excellent 'Original Masters' set returns some highly desirable Karl Richter rarities to local circulation, the most welcome being the harpsichordist's magisterial and sonorous set of Bach's "Goldberg Variations" . . . on disc . . . A treasurable collection indeed.

Disc 1 starts with one of Richter's finest achievements, the 1953 version of Schütz's "Musikalische Exequien". The solo and choral singing projects an extraordinarily devout atmosphere and the sparse accompaniment is beautifully handled. We have had other good recordings since, but none to match this one. The disc is made up with Handel arias by Haefliger -- a sublime 'total eclipse'; and Disc 2 present miscellaneous arias by the disarmingly bird-like Maria Stader. Disc 3 has two concertos by Bach . . . the symphonies by his son are magnificently performed, as are the Haydn symphonies (Disc 4). Disc 5 replicates a great Richter organ recital, never on CD before. Others have thundered out the Liszt and Mozart pieces convincingly but no one has come near the warmth and humanity of the Brahms chorale preludes.

. . . it has conviction . . .

La précision unique du geste de Richter s'épanouit comme nulle part ailleurs dans cette écriture fragmentée, tout en ruptures, et la virtuosité trépidante de l'orchestre nous offre la meilleure version de ce chef-d'¿uvre sur instruments modernes . . .

. . . encontraremos música que nos emocionará: las canciones sacras -- de Bach y otros autores -- que canta el tenor Peter Schreier acompañado al órgano con Richter, música que respira, que vive. O el órgano romántico de Brahms y Liszt, un pequeño tesoro de esta colección. Una recopilación, por tanto, variada y atractiva.
