Notes & Reviews:
"Maestro Thielemann presides over one of the most exciting, emotionally committed Mozart recordings to have appeared in quite some time. It is a grand performance, full of drama and big gestures. The 'Dies Irae' is a juggernaut heading straight for the cataclysm of Judgement Day. The Kyrie- Cum Sanctis double-fugue is intense to a fault as it builds inexorably (both times) to a shattering final cadence. If you've been duped into believing that Mozart tiptoed gently into that good night with the sounds of pipsqueak choirs and peppy little vocal runs dancing in his head, you may be in for a shock! Orchestrally, this is the best Mozart Requiem ever For my money, Thielemann's emotionally rich conception and stellar realization of the orchestral score propel his Mozart Requiem to the top rank of those currently available." -ARG
...has one ever heard this or that passage sound so beautiful, so fully realized before?.. The ensemble worked wonders!
