I have heard several recordings of Requiem, and the Karl Bohm rendition is my favorite.
Mike
The pacing is perfect and the reading has the right combination of gravitas and dignity without being stodgy and lumbering which I usually associate with Bohm.

I can only review Bohm's interpretation of the requiem in the context of the only other version I have -- the weak Karajan version recorded in 1987. In contrast to Karajan who rushes through this piece in an unseemly and bizarre manner, Bohm adopts a majestic pace much more suitable, in my view, to this sort of music. Some think the pace too slow but I find Bohm's reading delicately nuanced yet crisp and quite vigorous when it needs to be. Bohm's take on the requiem feels flexible, mature, confident, whereas Karajan feels like he is trying much too hard for reasons that are entirely inapparent. Moreover, the singing on the Bohm recording is much better than that on the Karajan. The soloists in particular sound far superior and the chorus is wonderful. Interestingly, both Karajan and Bohm recorded with the Wiener Philharmoniker -- except Bohm clocks in at 64:26 (mins: secs) versus Karajan at 52:10. Unless you are in a hurry for some strange reason, you should buy this version and smell the flowers, as it were.

I cannot claim that no other Mozart Requiem is as good as this. Still I don't need any other. If this is slow, it is a slowness that is needed to let the power of drama to unfold. Mozart never wrote anything as profoundly tragic as this work. In my opinion there are two great Mozart directors, for all their differences: Boehm and Gardiner. Perhaps I buy the Gardiner later, perhaps not. I can do with this some more years.

PS: August 2006: After recommendation, I've got the Peter Schreier-performance of the Requiem. It is leaner and clearer, as good sung as this; many will claim much better - but still I am not finished with my Boehm. In fact, the Schreier only reinforces my love for the Boehm-version. It seems to be definite as far as I am concerned.
PS 11th July 2007: Meanwhile I have bought the Requiem conducted by Rafael Fruhbeck De Burgos, brisker tempos, which feel just right. I never listen to the Boehm nor the Schreier anymore... I regret my five stars, sorry, should only be four. See the five star Rafael Fruhbeck De Burgos here:

Karl Bohm has always been praised for his sensitive interpretations of Mozart but I had always pledged my allegiance to the more flamboyant performances of Karajan. Until now. I have nothing but praise for this recording. The pacing is perfect and the reading has the right combination of gravitas and dignity without being stodgy and lumbering which I usually associate with Bohm. The quartet of soloists is excellent and the Wiener Statsoper choir is superior to the Vienna Singverein which sings for Karajan. I was completely won over the moment the Kyrie came on; the attack and polish of the basses was truly exciting. The sound quality is also amazing for its age; there is hardly any hiss and easily rivals and surpasses some of the digital recordings. If there is only one recording of the requiem you can buy then this is it.

I currently own 6 versions of Mozart's Requiem, and I'll review them here.

1. My current favorite is Bohm's: Mozart: Requiem. It possesses all the virtues of Karajan or Bernstein's, with the recording quality enjoyed by Abbado's. Highly recommended. Back-story: I though five versions were enough; then a friend criticized this recording, saying, "Bohm conducts Mozart as if he were Brahms." Well, that, I thought, is exactly the how I like it! If you don't, well, then skip this one, as well as the Bernstein and the Karajan.

2. My former favorite was Bernstein's: Mozart - Requiem / McLaughlin, M. Ewing, Hauptmann, Bayerischen Rundfunks, Bernstein. (It is also availabe in a box set of Bernstein's recordings of Mozart, which I'd heartily recommend to anyone: Mozart: The late Symphonies; Great Mass in C minor; Requiem [Box Set].) I cannot say that this is perfect, but it is the way I like to hear the Requiem: slow, stately, and solemn. I don't think anyone excited about the principles of period performance is going to like it, but I believe if Mozart had the resources available to a modern orchestra, he'd want to hear something like this.

3. About 15 years ago I decided to learn about classical music - not because I actually enjoyed it, but because I wanted to be a cultural person.

I have come to love Bohm's direction of the works of Mozart, and this is no exception. The first Requiem I owned was Herbert Von Karajan's, and for a long time I loved it very much... However, as I became older, it sounded increasingly (and overly) muddled to me. Having read good reviews of it, I went out and purchased Gardiner's version. This I liked even less... though it is clear and concise, it feels all wrong for the opposite reasons. The parts which are naturally busy sound good under Gardiner's direction... but too often, the whole thing comes off as thin and passionless. This version, by Bohm, has turned out to be my "just right" bowl of porridge. Though the tempos are a little slow... only a little... the work as a whole will only grow on you. It is a great experience and a nice balance between Karajan's romanticism and Gardiner's precision.
