 My favorite DVD of all time November 19, 2013 By John Brauer (Fish Creek, WI) See All My Reviews "I cannot praise this DVD highly enough. The Dvorak Requiem is his finest sacred work, and this 1993 videorecording captured a special time when Czechoslovakia was recently liberated. The performance by the Prague Symphony and Chorus is perfect in every way. It is masterfully conducted by Petr Altrichter. All four soloists are great, but the extra special award goes to the beloved Lucia Popp, making her swan song shortly before her untimely and unexpected death later that year. This is NOT TO BE MISSED! I have hundreds of CDs and DVDs of classical music, but this is MY ALLTIME FAVORITE!" Report Abuse
