Album Summary

>Verdi, Giuseppe : Requiem Mass
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Verdi begun composition on his "Messa da requiem" on the occasion of Gioachino Rossini's death and finished it following the death of nationally revered writer Alessandro Manzoni; It received a full performance in 1874 and was an instant triumph. The work itself is stylistically varied, dramatically operatic in some parts and tending toward sacred polyphony in others. This classic recording features the excellent Rundfunkchor Leipzig conducted by the famed operatic and symphonic conductor, Giuseppe Patanč.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2016
An unheralded Requiem from the 1970s, but with solid soloists, fine choral singing and well-balanced sound, Patane proves an excellent Verdian, eliciting excitement without melodrama in a movingly devotional reading.
