Notes & Reviews:

Mozart's Requiem is surrounded by mystery and myth: commissioned anonymously by a wealthy aristocrat through an enigmatic 'grey messenger', it was left incomplete when the composer died in 1791. For all that, its true power lies in the solemn, yet often impassioned dignity of its musical language. Conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker, two choirs from Sweden and a carefully chosen quartet of soloists, Muti, in the words of Gramophone leads 'a big-scale reading, dramatically inclined'.
