How Otto Klemperer asked Scherbaum to come to London in a hurry for the recording of the 2nd Brandenburg concerto of J.S. Bach [1.213 KB]
J.S. Bach, 2nd Brandenburg Concerto [5.189 KB] (with the North German Radio Sinfony Orchestra at Leningrad on 2 Mai, 1961)
The tape recording (of which the musicians ware not aware) was a gift from the Soviet Radio.
Verena Jacobsen Barth's comment on this recording: "...Scherbaums's playing is absolutely breathtaking. It is true that he mostly played very quietly, but when he got to the three high Gs in the 1st movement he turned up the volume so massively that you can't hear the other players at all, such was his supreme mastery of this high register."
