This review is accurate, in that the soloists were indeed "frequently rushed" by conductor Robert Shaw. He was determined to leave his own mark on the Mass in B Minor, with his "concertists" interpretation. There were five, not four, soloists; "concertists style" simply meant that Mr. Shaw designated specific passages in the choral movements to be sung not by the chorus but by the five soloists--actually five "concertists." My feeling was, in this particular performance at least, "concertists" style was not something the audience could appreciate or enjoy; it simply did not work. Possibly in a recording, this interpretation was more successful.
