Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Collegium Vocale Gent, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic and Philippe Herreweghe join forces once again for a monument of the sacred choral repertoire: Antonín Dvorák's Requiem, Op. 89. This work, dating from 1890, is one of those that marked a new phase in the composer's musical creation, in which he recognized himself 'as much a poet as well as a musician'. In addition, this reveals the veritable nature of a composer without constraint, probably being neither a commission nor an occasional work. Philippe Herreweghe offers us an interpretation as dense and concentrated as the writing of this masterpiece requires.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Herreweghe's performance is certainly very good - well paced and sensitive to the music, which can range from devotional to fairly operatic. The solo quartet is satisfactory. Fink sounds more laden with vibrato now than when I've heard her before, and Nathan Berg sounds like Theo Adam! The Ghent chorus is very good. This recording is certainly satisfactory.
