Notes and Editorial Reviews

Looking back on the Verdi year of 2013, BR-KLASSIK has now supplemented its discography with the live recording of a concert highlight of October 2013, with Mariss Jansons and the Symphonieorchester and Chorus of the Bayerischer Rundfunk. With the “Messa da Requiem”, chief conductor Mariss Jansons is now represented on the BRKLASSIK label with Verdi's choral-symphonic legacy. Together with the international soloists (Krassimira Stoyanova, Marina Prudenskaya, Saimir Pirgu, Orlin Anastassov) and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Chorus of the Bayerischer Rundfunk is also a fundamental element of the Requiem, and its tonal versatility received special praise from the press.
