Editorial Reviews

Fritz Lehmann (1904 - 1956) became conductor of the Händel Festival in Göttingen in 1934, and held numerous conducting posts, the last one in Göttingen (1946-1950). He subsequently was a teacher at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich (from 1953). A consummate conductor, he led notable performances in oratorio, opera, and symphonic literature, ranging from the Baroque period to the 20th century. He died at age 52 of a heart attack during a performance of Bach s St. Matthew Passion. Especially noted for his Bach and Handel interpretations, he made numerous acclaimed Bach cantata recordings for DGG. He left no studio recording of the St. John Passion so we are fortunate that this live performance, with the highly experienced soloists Julius Patzak as the Evangelist and Gerard Souzay as Christ, was taped.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In 1949 the late Fritz Lehmann conducted a memorable performance of Bach's monumental St. Matthew Passion in Berlin. Around six years later Lehmann conducted a live performance of Bach's St. John Passion in Vienna. A comparison of the two would find the St. Matthew to be the better performance, mainly due to a better cast of soloists, and to the fact that in the St. John Lehmann tended to be a bit too slow with the opening and closing choruses. On the other hand, the choral work throughout the narrative proper (including the interspersed chorales) was vintage Lehmann. There was fire where it was appropriate, and a more introspective style where that was indicated. As mentioned above, the soloists, except for Walter Berry, left something to be desired. Hoffgen and Souzay are outstanding singers, but are out of their element here. Patzak as the evangelist, and Soprano Graf just didn't quite fit the music. Overall, however, this is a recording well worth having, since it is an extra look at a phenomenal choral conductor. In spite of the shortcomings of most of the soloists, and the fact that the tenor aria "Erwege" was omitted, I'd say the recording is worth four stars. It is available, of course, directly from Amazon.
