Notes & Reviews:

"There have been so many good recordings of Verdi's gripping Requiem over the years that I had almost forgotten about this one, recorded in Vienna in 1967 with Solti conducting the Vienna Philharmonic and the Vienna State Opera Chorus. Decca has just reissued it. Wow! Solti draws an electrifying performance from this great orchestra and his stellar roster of vocal soloists. The soprano Joan Sutherland is in her glory. Though her husband, the conductor Richard Bonynge, molded Ms. Sutherland into a leading exponent of Bel Canto opera and was crucial to her longevity, she often did her most exciting work under other conductors who pushed her to take chances, as Solti does here. Marilyn Horne is the formidable mezzo-soprano, Martti Talvela the stentorian bass. And Luciano Pavarotti, 32 at the time, is amazing, singing with youthful energy and throbbing intensity. No wonder the opera world was agog when he appeared on the scene during this period. (The release includes Solti's vibrant later recording of Verdi's "Four Sacred Pieces," with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.) " -The New York Times
