Notes & Reviews:

Grammy Award winning conductor Paavo JSrvi, new musical director of the Orchestre de Paris, leads the prestigious ensemble in this stunning live performance of Faure's Requiem.

Faure did not set his Requiem to the standard liturgical text, instead adding a lyrical Pie Jesu and transcendent Paradisum, and omitting the Dies Irae and Tuba Mirum. It has become one of the most revered and popular Requiems ever composed.

Gramophone Magazine
This is an appealing concert that cleverly mixes the familiar with the unfamiliar and includes a well-known piece in an unfamiliar guise...Jarvi keeps the music flowing along nicely...The violas and cellos are wonderfully expressive throughout...Isabelle Soulard's video direction is pleasingly unobtrusive.

BBC Music Magazine
Reiss sings [the Pie Jesu] with feeling, and with audible words.

Fanfare Magazine - Lynn René Bayley
This is unquestionably one of the finest things, if not the finest, that I've ever heard Paavo Järvi do, but by and large I would have preferred it as a music CD. I can live without watching Järvi's podium act, and let's face it, an orchestra and chorus performing Fauré isn't the most exciting thing to watch.
