. . . [the fact that Peter Schreier] knows the score inside out and that he loves the music passionately, shines through the whole performance . . . [few, if any, artists have been] so totally committed to the spirit of this great work, or have made it sound like a finished masterpiece . . . He is, as every singer should be, especially sensitive to the words, as well as to the music . . . The solo quartet is unusually fine and well balanced . . . Margaret Price sings the prominent soprano part better than I can ever remember having heard it sung . . . The Leipzig Radio Chorus and the Dresden State Orchestra provide splendid support and Philips's digital recording is uncannily vivid . . . Schreier's performance is a revelation, and his recording is the one that I would take to my desert island if I had the choice.
