Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I almost passed this DVD up because it had no reviews, but I have long been a fan of Christian Thielemann and his growing reputation as an interpreter of note where German composers are concerned. This was certainly a satisfying performance. Thielemann was impressive, not only for conducting from memory and his obvious mastery of choral conducting, frequently mouthing the chorus' phrases as he conducted them. The Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks had a terrific sound and their ability to sing en masse so pianissimo to be hardly heard through grand to fortissimos that bordered on breathtaking was impressive. Soprano Christine Schafer is terrific. Her voice is incredibly clear and warm, even in the higher register. I have other DVD recordings with baritone Christian Gerhaher, and if anything, felt this was the best performance he's delivered on any of the other discs in my collection. The Munchner Philharmoniker is a fine ensemble and the playing was solid with a wonderful warmth befitting Brahms. This orchestra was also selected by Sergiu Celebidache for one of his later recordings of merit.
This was a live performance in the Philharmonie im Gasteig in Munich from Aril 2007 and the sound quality was really quite good, although biased a bit toward the chorus and organ - I eventually reduced the bass output because the organ o tended to dominate in certain passages (which could have something to do with the acoustics of my listening environment). This would not be a reason to pass up on this fine DVD, however. It was impressive that the audience withheld applause (as requested prior to the performance, which added to the overall experience. If I have any even slight disappointment with this fine video performance, it would have to be the lighting.

Format: DVD
I got this DVD based on the lead reviewer's remarks, and am very glad for that indeed!
The Brahms Requiem is basically a choral work - most of the mass is sung by the chorus, the baritone has just barely two pieces leading the chorus, and the soprano just one solo piece.
It is those type of work that will easily fail to grip the audience should any one part of the performance flags.
Happily, this performance is homogeneously splendid.
Yes, Thielemann conducts from memory, giving the chorus vocal cues. It is truly amazing to see him guiding the ensemble through this massive work. The choir is not exactly large in numbers (compared to the live performance I went to earlier this year), but their performance is outstanding, for under Thielemann's guidance, they respond with detailed and responsive expressivity, some thing not to be taken for granted in a large ensemble.
The orchestra plays beautifully, too, with pristine sound balance of all different departments.
Christian Gerhaher sung the baritone part with great empathy and verbal incisiveness, while Christine Schafer is an awesome soloist in the soprano part.
It is a big surprise that this recording was of a live performance as early as April 2007, and still so 'little' known!
Highly recommended.
