Sir Adrian Boult und Londoner Symphonie-Orchester spielen Haendels "Messiah" (und Arien aus Jephtha, Judas Maccabaeus & Samson). Vollstaendige Fassung in der Original-Instrumentation, englisch gesungen. Aufn.: 1961. Mit Joan Sutherland, Grace Bumbry, Kenneth McKellar und David Ward.


The Youthful Sutherland is excellent;she deserves credit for introducing some elegant ornamentation into her arias.Although this recording may be of interest only to the specialists,Im glad to see it back in the catalogue. --IRR,Mar'11

Die 3 CD`s sind nicht wie angegeben SACD's!! Mein Player zeigt dies jedenfalls nicht an! Ich bitte Amazon mir die SACD's zu schicken.
Dann erhält Amazon die mir zugesandten CD's zurück.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Exemplar of Its Era 17. Dezember 2010
Von Thomas Gleim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In a work as recorded as Messiah, everyone can surely locate a performance that suits their exact needs. I own several Messiahs, from excerpts recorded in the nineteenth century to the latest PPP efforts. The truth is, this immortal warhorse transcends any particular performance style and speaks to us regardless of the interpretive biases in force when a particular recording was made. It may be a bit disconcerting to a modern listener to go back to a really old recording and hear a massed chorus of hundreds singing, but after adjusting to the old style with an open mind, a modern listener can still come to a great appreciation for such an antique reading.

Boult's (second) recording of Messiah was made in 1961 and reflects the music-making of its era: (modern-style) operatic singing for the solos, a modern symphony orchestra and chorus and interpretive details of tempo, phrasing, articulation, etc. based on typical modern performance practice. Looking at the evolution of performance style for this work over the course of recording history, this type of performance occupies a transitional ground between the truly bloated performances of the early twentieth century (choruses of hundreds, very stately tempos, etc) and the soon-to-emerge leaner, lither efforts meant to hue to baroque standards. The real question regarding this recording isn't how it compares to every other Messiah - a question no one could possibly answer. The real question for any potential buyer is whether or not this is the type of Messiah they're seeking, and, if so, is this the one to get?

In general, this is a very fine performance. The soloists are really superb (given that you aren't expecting any baroque style to creep into their singing). I've long admired Boult's Handel conducting, and he does a noteworthy job here, though I have to confess to being slightly disappointed in the conducting: not the best I've heard from Sir Adrian in Handel. Individual numbers are usually fine, but the work isn't shaped as well as possible overall, and along the way some of the tenderness is missed. Sound is okay, though I have to believe that nowadays better remastering could be done. What we hear here is clear enough but somewhat dim. Problems aside, I can't imagine rating this performance at less than five stars - it's in the top drawer even if some others beat it out. The greatest argument in favor of this issue is the cast of soloists, who really aren't bettered by anybody else's recording.

For ideas on competing readings in the same general style, you might consider either Beecham (fourth and last recording) or Solti. Both of those are controversial for one reason or another, but in general, they're very comparable to this one in many ways. (Those are just two of many other possible alternatives made in that period.) I suggest listening to the clips and deciding if this is what you want or not. You won't really go wrong with this, so you don't need to agonize over it if you're tempted.

Beside Messiah, the release includes some stray arias from other oratorios sung by McKellar and Sutherland. It comes with a 20-page booklet (English, German, French) that includes the full English text (no translations).

Update (2/25/2011): Thanks to Mr. John J. Schauer for pointing out to me that Sir Thomas Beecham made three - not four - recordings of Messiah.
