Gary Lemco
Audiophile Audition, February 2004

"For the Beethoven Fourth Concerto, [Knappertsbusch] has the collaboration of Wilhelm Backhaus (1884-1969), the esteemed veteran, himself 78 at the time of this silken performance. The camerawork, directed by Herman Lanske, is just as smooth, very much in the "Karajan" mode of close scrutiny of the score, with the camera's anticipating each voice entry, with plenty of medium cuts to embrace the soloists, the conductor, and concertmaster Willy Boskovsky...Nilsson's voice simply soars above the orchestra... she can sustain her high notes with energy to spare."
