Editorial Reviews

At his premature death in the early hours of 5th December, 1791, Mozart left his final masterpiece unfinished and shrouded in mystery. It had been commissioned by a 'grey messenger' whose ghostly apparition convinced the sick and impoverished composer tha

You may want to reject my review as being relatively uninformed because I have been, in the past, completely averse to the Mozart Requiem. I can't explain that except to recall that my first exposure to the work was from a recording of the old bloated, 100-voice choir and full orchestra sort. It put me off the thing. I am ashamed to admit that I have gone through life thinking I didn't like the work -- in spite of being a real lover of Mozart's music in general -- and I had never owned another recording of it nor sought out a live performance of it. I have been castigated by fellow music-lovers as being a philistine. So be it.

But the wonderful thing is that this recording -- which I acquired almost by chance -- has made a believer of me. I cannot enter into the musicological pros and cons of Sussmayer's completion; it all sounds like Mozart to me. But the best thing is that this performance is fleet, clean, bright and shiny with a simply marvelous chamber chorus (the Gewandhaus Kammerchor) and a chamber orchestra drawn from players in the Leipzig Gewandhaus orchestra. The chorus's ability to sing the tricky, fast contrapuntal lines is astonishing. They are abetted by an orchestral accompaniment that uses the best of the performance-practice gestures learned from the HIP crowd. The soloists are each quite fine even though I'd never heard of any of them. (I particularly like the bass, Martin Snell.) Conductor Morten Schuldt-Jensen, a Danish choral specialist, shapes the music with loving care but without self-indulgent swooning.

The first two tracks, before the Requiem, are two offertory choruses I'd never heard before. Each is very impressive, especially 'Inter natos mulierum' with its unusual scoring for choir, strings, organ and three trombones.

So, if you're in the market for a budget-priced Mozart Requiem this is possibly the one for you. It certainly sold me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best version of Requiem I've found yet May 19, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
Very different from most recordings of Mozart's Requiem. It is my favorite that I've found yet. There mix is very dry, so it sounds very clear and present -- almost like it is recorded in your local church, rather than in a cathedral. Choir is fantastic, very clear and bell like. Highly recommended for those interested in a good recording of Mozart's beautiful and haunting spiritual masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly musical performance of the Mozart Requiem November 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The lean, early instrumental texture is matched by a clean choral performance rich with fitting yet bold phrasing. My ears picked up in the first four bars.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favorites May 17, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Everyone has an opinion, but this is my personal favorite recording of the Süssmayr completion.
I also own and really like Christopher Hogwood's (Academy of Ancient Music with Emma Kirkby) recording of the Maunder edition.
