Everyday Rather Live in Classic Eras

The Klemperer Legacy on EMI 8CDs BoxSet — Sacred Works Of Bach Handel Beethoven

This set brings together acclaimed recordings of four sacred choral masterpieces, under the baton of the legendary Otto Klemperer. The works here all played an important role in Klemperer’s long and distinguished career, and some of them were among the music that meant most to him; indeed, he once called Bach’s B minor Mass ‘the greatest and most unique music ever written’. Klemperer’s love of this music manifests itself in performances of overwhelming power, grandeur and majesty, supported by some of the most accomplished soloists of the time.
