Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

Well-known for spearheading a general revival of interest in, and modernizing the performance practices of Baroque music, especially Bach, after WWII, Karl Richter (1926-81) also conducted works by composers other than Bach, including Handel and Mozart. Heard here conducting the choral and orchestral forces he founded in mid-20th c., the Mu¨nchener Bach-Chor and Mu¨nchener Bach-Orchester, this performance of Mozart's Requiem, KV626 features a stellar company of soloists, including sopranos Maria Stader, Hertha Toepper and the fine Dutch-born lyric tenor John van Kesteren.
