Notes & Reviews:
A grand-scale interpretation of Mozart's last masterpiece in Franz Beyer's bold orchestration.
On the occasion of Mozart's anniversary in 2006, a new recording of his Requiem was produced by an exceptional cast: the Thomanerchor Leipzig (St Thomas's Boys Choir Leipzig) and the Gewandhausorchester (Gewandhaus Orchestra) are joined by renowned soloists under the baton of the present cantor at St Thomas, Georg Christoph Biller.
American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The adult soloists are all excellent, and the Gewandhaus Orchestra's luminous playing could hardly be bettered. Sound quality is very good, and the booklet is useful, revealing, and complete. This may not be my absolute favorite recording of the Requiem (I favor Harnoncourt's 2003 Super-Audio account on Deutsche Harmonia Mundi), but it certainly ranks near the top of my list.
