Notes & Reviews:

"From almost every point of view this is a superb version of a work whose vocal, choral and orchestral requirements...make it a severe challenge. Gergiev's...empathy with Verdi's extraordinary range of mood is outstanding. The Kirov Orchestra provides distinguished playing in every department...The choral singing is equally formidable in accuracy and tonal range." **** -Hall, BBC

Notes & Reviews:

Giuseppe Verdi is one of the most tuneful, beloved composers of vocal music Italy has produced. Verdi wrote REQUIEM in honor of Alessandro Manzoni, an Italian poet and novelist he greatly admired. Acclaimed tenor Andrea Bocelli and soprano Renee Fleming, along with conductor Valery Gergiev and the Kirov Orchestra, perform a moving rendition of this heartfelt work, perfectly capturing the depth of emotion and challenging musical requirements of this work. Any classical-music lover will appreciate this performance.
