    Default Mozart Requiem recordings

    “Not again”, will no doubt be the reaction of most fellow contributors. However, the deeply satisfying recording of this work is one of my obsessions. Bernstein? Yes, great singing and beautifully played by the Bavarian RSO - still a favorite. Solti, Abbado? Absolutely nothing wrong with them, save for an ill-suited Hollywood-type polish. Giulini 1-2 seem to be dragging. My current favorites are Schuricht and Kempe - by no means perfect but they seem to have this big heart, uniyielding pulse that for me is just so important in this work. Kempe is in not very great mono though. To my regret I could never get my hand on Britten on BBC legends - it was gone almost before it was published. Where will I go next?

    Hogwood is remarcable in terms of drama and profondeur.

    My personal favorite: Bohm, great soloist good recording, perhaps not everybody's taste, but my desert island disc.
    Theatre, a forum for public debate, an arena for cathartic spectacle and somewhere for vain bitchy people to show off in front of big crowds!


    I forgive criticisms, I like to embrace enemies.

    I've always found the Colin Davis/philips very satisfying (whereas Davis' recording of the c-minor Mass unfortunately suffers from some obvious flaws in the singing).

    Not a desert island composition for me, but Harnoncourt II is my favored recording:
