Verdi Requiem - Barenboim

Jonas Kaufmann
Description:
Verdi: Requiem

Anja Harteros (soprano), Elīna Garanča (mezzo), Jonas Kaufmann (tenor), René Pape (bass)
Orchestra e coro del Teatro alla Scala, Milan,
Daniel Barenboim

Daniel Barenboim directs a peerless team of soloists, starring Jonas Kaufmann, and the Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala in Verdi’s Messa da Requiem

Forged in the white heat of live performance, Daniel Barenboim’s sensational account of Verdi’s Requiem on Decca is sure to stand among the most important classical releases of 2013 and to endure as a lasting landmark of the Verdi Year. It also represents the conductor’s first audio recording in his role as Music Director of Milan’s illustrious opera house.

Barenboim’s vision of the composition highlights the work’s rich humanity, from the searing force of its Dies irae (“Day of wrath”) to the transcendent beauty of the closing Libera me prayer (“Deliver me”).

The new recording features an all-star cast, complete with one of today’s greatest Verdians, Jonas Kaufmann, whose interpretation of the work’s sublime tenor solos captivate the ear. It also connects directly with the great Verdi legacy cultivated by the Orchestra of Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, scene of the Requiem’s first concert presentation in May 1874 and of many legendary performances since.
