Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Requiem

Album Summary

>Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus : Requiem in D minor, K 626
Performers Conductor Ensemble
  • >

Notes & Reviews:

An absolute masterpiece in the history of music, intrinsically linked to the Mozart myth, Mozart's Requiem is revisited under the energetic baton of director Teodor Currentzis. This fascinating, striking interpretation is reinforced by a remarkable array of soloists: Simone Kermes, Stéphanie Houtzeel, Markus Brutscher, and Arnaud Richard. Thanks to optimal recording conditions (seven days of studio recording) led by Hugues Deschaux (responsible for recording Le Poème Harmonique and Café Zimmermann), the interpretation is enriched by the particular care with which the sound was recorded. Mirroring the Requiem, the world premiere of the contemporary Hosanna, written by young Russian composer Sergei Zagny, reflects the Requiem in its aesthetics, describing the story of the composing of the Requiem.
