Dvorak: Stabat Mater
mpn: 089408050626, ean: 0089408050626,
4.8 out of 5 stars with 152 reviews
Conductor Robert Shaw's death three months after this recording was made brought to an unexpected close a rare and distinguished career that always was dominated by Shaw's activities as a choral conductor. As with Leonard Bernstein's final recording--a live concert performance at Tanglewood--there is a sense of determination and drive and assuredness in this Dvorák performance that can come only from a lifetime of experience, of being involved, of being constantly in the midst of the action.

The suites date from the waning days of monophonic sound. It's big-band Bach, far removed from today's speculative recreations of period style, but also distant from the bloated Bach of the past. Klemperer, fairly lean and objective, still digs deeply into the music. The uncredited flutist in Suite No. 2 is touching. Overture movements here are appropriately grand and, while tempos are moderate (no break-dancing to these dance movements), Klemperer's rhythmic mastery keeps the music flowing.
