MOZART – Requiem In D Minor

MOZART – Requiem In D Minor
Classique | ape + cue | 236 Mb
Release Date 16 May, 1990
DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON

Requiem for Soloists, Chorus, and Orchestra, K. 626
Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART
Interpreted by BERLIN Philharmonic Orchestra / VIENNA Performers: Agnes BALTSA, Jose Van DAM, Werner KRENN, Rudolf SCHOLZ, Anna TOMOWA-SINTOW
Conducted by Herbert von KARAJAN


Performers:

Agnes BALTSA (Alto), José Van DAM (Basse), Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART (Compositeur), Herbert von KARAJAN (Chef d’orchestre), BERLINER Philharmoniker (Orchestre), WIENER Singverein (Orchestre), Rudolf SCHOLZ (Orgue), Anna TOMOWA-SINTOW (Soprano), Werner KRENN (Ténor)

This is arguably Mr M’s meisterwerk. Much of his work seems to me a tad too saccharine, too sweet. But not this majestic opus!

Here be the supreme Requiem In D Minor perfectly performed under the baton of Von Karajan.

Between 1961 and 1986, Herbert von Karajan made three recordings of the Mozart Requiem for Deutsche Grammophon, with little change in his conception of the piece over the years. This recording, from 1975, is, on balance, the best of them.

The approach is Romantic, broad, and sustained, marked by a thoroughly homogenized blend of chorus and orchestra, a remarkable richness of tone, striking power, and an almost marmoreal polish. Karajan viewed the Requiem as idealized church music rather than a confessional statement awash in operatic expressiveness. In this account, the orchestra is paramount, followed in importance by the chorus, then the soloists.

Not surprisingly, the singing of the solo quartet sounds somewhat reined-in, especially considering these singers’ pedigrees. By contrast, the Vienna Singverein, always Karajan’s favorite chorus, sings with a huge dynamic range and great intensity, though with an emotional detachment nonetheless. Perfection, if not passion or poignancy, is the watchword. The Berlin orchestra plays majestically, and the sound is pleasingly vivid.
