Edition von Karajan Vol 1 - Verdi: Requiem - Live 1949

Album Summary

>Verdi, Giuseppe : Requiem Mass
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Herbert von Karajan's first recording of the Verdi Requiem (Salzburg Festival, 1949) was made at a time when he was laboriously rebuilding his career. It harbors not only echoes of the war but also the uncertainties of the post-war period. The expressive power and spontaneity of the performance reveal a conductor who commands his audience no less than his orchestra.
