    I noticed there are differences in the first violin in the Lacrimosa of Mozart's Requiem with some conductors. So while these all performs the version I'm used to: Karajan Giulini Abbado Marriner These two does not, already in the 3rd bar where the chorus enters, the first violin does not play...

    This Messe de Requiem has something others do not, and moves my "spirit" more than any other setting by Mozart or others I have ever heard, from the opening chorus of one heavenly voice upon another, to the intimate solo's and haunting melodies... I don't think anything else can and will...

    2009 thread about the work I've started a Berlioz Grande Messe des Morts challenge in the last days, counting 30 different performances. I have other questions, but which are your favourite performances and what do you like to feel listening to them?

    I think the whole thing sounds wonderful and would never have guessed that it was composed by two different composers with vastly different skill levels. Are those of you more attuned to the finer details in music able to notice the contrast between the composers? Bonus question: Is there a...

    With the countless recordings and published editions of Mozart's Requiem, I'm curious to hear what the community's personal preferences are regarding the work. Do you enjoy Sussmayr's original completion the most? Why or why not? Out of all the modern completions, which do you think is most...

    Verdi's Requiem and my Mother Years ago, my mother adored the Toscanini live mono recording of the Verdi Requiem. She was so enthralled with it that she insisted that one of the soprano/mezzo soprano duets (“Recordare, Jesu pie....”) be played at her funeral. I didn't know what to make of my...

    The BSO I've always had a soft spot for Charles Munch and the BSO that he conducted for so many years when I lived in Boston and attended lots open rehearsals where I saw him inspire the hotshots: Samuel Mayes and Joseph D. Pasquale in particular. Two of Munch's recordings with the BSO that I...

    i'm building my Mozart collection after some neglect. So similar to my thread about his last 3 symphonies, I'd like a great version of his requiem mass. Ideally a great performance and at least a good quality recording. Any recommendations? And I know there are a number of different scores...

    In a critique of Mozart's Requiem, Berlioz praised certain movements (e.g. Rex Tremendae and Lacrimosa), but dismissed others as inadequate. I was very surprised that he considered the Dies Irae unsatisfactory, as that has always been my favorite portion of the Requiem. Berlioz thought that it...

    Over the next period of time (weeks? months?) I intend to listen to every single piece Mozart has eve recorded from the Requiem to the little notebook of tiny piano pieces composed when he was about 5 years old. Mozart is one intellectual who has managed to impress me more and more when I...

    There are several 'completions' of the Mozart Requiem. The best known and most frequently performed is the one by Süssmayr. I'm not that familiar with other versions. But last weekend in Albany they did a new completion by some modern composers -who call themselves Sleeping Giant- at a concert...

    Many on the forum know that just this past weekend I sung in the chorus for a performance of War Requiem directed by Keith Lockhart. There are two chimes that play just before the Kyrie (which follows a solo passage accompanied by the chamber orchestra, which tonally has little to do with the...
