Bruno Walter was 78 when he finally decided to put the German Requiem to disc (Dec 1954, New York City). The project brought together a veritable all-star cast: George London, Irmgard Seefried, the Westminster Choir, and the New York Philharmonic. Sadly, the mono sound tends to obscure some of the wonderful work produced by these first-rate artists. Nevertheless, this album is guaranteed to provide thrills even in the HDTV era. At 62", this is one of the fastest readings ever recorded, beating even Gardiner's 65" period instrument rendition on Philips  . George London was my major draw toward this album. His is a big, powerful sound (he's recorded Wagner's Wotan) that has a certain malevolence that seems to touch everything he sings. You will not easily forget his work.
