This recording really is the exact opposite of four-square or pedestrian. There's so much tender loving care and dedication from all involved performers. I own quite a few recordings of this piece (Klemperer, Karajan, Giulini, Jochum, Shaw, Levine, Herreweghe, Tennstedt, Toscanini, Furtwangler, Celibidache) and this is perhaps the most organic, earthy, and simple.
At times, it's almost overwhelmingly beautiful, in that the singers seem to be some sort of celestial force, floating above an almost primordial bubbling and gurgling of the orchestra. Harmonies are allowed to resolve, chords painstakingly evolved.
At times, it's also almost horrifying. The amount of colors and tension released throughout are absolutely incredible, making the slow moments seem completely natural and sublime, rather than forced or expected. Each and every punctuation is absolutely apparent. The usual outbursts of pseudo-excitement are avoided, in an effort to let the music itself actually roar.
