Notes & Reviews:

Among the activities undertaken by the Vienna Singverein to commemorate its 150th anniversary season was a series of performances of Dvorak's Requiem with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the direction of Mariss Jansons. On this specially priced 2-SACD release, Jansons, who has a special affinity with Dvorak's late works, has paired the Requiem with a recording of the Symphony No. 8. Of particular note in Jansons' interpretation of both works here is his amazing attention to detail which is so characteristic of his performances but which in no way impedes the development of extended, overarching climaxes.

"This concert 8th from the Concertgebouw is gorgeously played...I admire everything about this performance, which unfolds spaciously with all the breadth and unforced eloquence one could want...It's not often that an alto comes off as the dominant soloist, but Mihoko Fujimura manages that here...Aided by superb in-concert engineering, the Viennese choir sounds terrific. Indeed, what emerges from the speakers is so vivid that even if you're clinging proudly to Ancerl's 1959 recording (which is fine sound, by the way) you might consider augmenting it with this just to admire the Requiem anew, decked out in the latest sonic fashion."-American Record Guide
