Notes & Reviews:
Abbe Georg Joseph Vogler (1749–1814) was a Catholic priest who became one of the most noted music teachers of his era. Among his students were Weber and Meyerbeer. The Requiem premiered after the composer’s death in 1814, when critics compared it favorably to Mozart’s great Requiem in D. The Kurpfalzisches Kammerorchester is the chamber orchestra of Ludwigshafen-Mannheim. In 1777, at the height of musical life at the royal court in Mannheim, Abbe Vogler founded the Mannheimer Tonschule. The history of the Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Mannheim is directly influenced by this great tradition, and it is a special duty for these musicians to follow this important heritage as they do on this recording.
