 Requiem  June 10, 2016 By Tapani Talo (Yonkers, NY) See All My Reviews "I wanted to compare few Verdi's Requiems and started with Karajan Gold - Verdi: Requiem (/ Tomowa-Sintow, Baltsa, Carreras, Van Dam) This one is truly a masterful in every respect, utilizing the perfect conductor, acoustics, singers and recording method. It is so fascinating to see the difference in mood and interpretation along with recording, singers etc. Getting few more for my car for this summer. Good way to remember my late wife who was an opera singer also" Report Abuse
