I never really tire of listening to the Requiem, authenticity be damned ! This is one of the best versions I know. Richter is smack in the middle of the timing range for the works (51 minutes, most being between 45-56 minutes long). It has breadth, but great drive in the right places, and not a single movement drags or sounds tired. Furthermore it is superbly played and sung. The recorded sound (1961, venue unknown) is wide-ranging and warm, although there are bits of peaking when sopranos sing exposed passages. The Munich Bach Orchestra was a chamber ensemble made up of players from the BRSO, the Munich Philharmonic and other bavarian ensembles. Its proficiency was unrivalled at the time. The vocal soloists are excellent.

Ah, I hadn't thought of using height before!  When I had asked the same question some time ago, a kind user had just told me about using the width...clever you!   ;)  And, yes, good idea if you're doing multiple image uploads in the same posting.

PD

+1  ;D  Yes, if both are changed but the calculation in your head is not the same aspect ratio, then distortion - so that's why I always just use the height as the single measurement - the HTML figures our the right adjustment and all of your images on the same line are the exact height; of course you need to make sure they fit on the line relative to your screen size used (I'm usually typing on a laptop so 1000 pixel width or less is my goal).  Dave :)

I remember that you had kept certain LPs, Jan, But I cannot remember whether or not you still have a turntable.

I have Fergus,I used to have a Denon DP 67 but I sold It a few years ago.It was still in mint condition but I was worried about the lack of spare parts.Ik have still a turntable in excellent condition,a very simple indistructable Lenco L75 .Everything original with a Ortofon 2M blue.
It does the job very well.The Denon turntable was impressive just by the looks at it.
The Lenco is not a bad player and more than forty years old.
It will outlive me,I'm sure.
I used my phone for this post wich is rather difficult. :)

Also, keep in mind that if 're-sizing' an image that may have both width & height dimensions, you need to just use one dimension, the other will be automatically adjusted depending on the aspect ratio - e.g. I usually just use 'height' so if I have images on one line their heights will match.  Dave :)

I like all the voices, different in caracter as the are suited for their role.
Do you happen to know if it's played on period instruments or not?

Patronize away  ;D I've been listening to Bruckner since late 2019, but still feel that I'm new to his music. There is much I have yet to fully understand. Happy to rate him as one of my favorite composers now.

Good to hear flamme!  :)

Without trying to sound patronising I think that you are doing very well so far in your Bruckner exploration.

I hadn't heard her recording of that aria before, but enjoyed listening to it on youtube.  How do you like the other singers, etc. in that recording Traverso?
At that time in my life, I was particularly enthralled with tales of King Arthur, the Knights of the R.T., etc.   :)
