Notes and Editorial Reviews

...I got out a favourite version [of the Mozart Requiem], Franz Welser-Möst on EMI, recorded about 15 years ago...and everything felt so right: no long-windedness but a healthy forward flow, finely contrasted with the dramatic sections given their due, secure singing from the London Philharmonic Choir and a line-up of renowned soloists with Felicity Lott in her most silvery vein. Could this really be bettered, provided you could live without period instruments?... The sizeable LPO singers ring out magnificently in the big outbursts and are wonderfully silken in pianissimo... Welser-Möst’s [approach is] more dramatic, more solemn but still extremely vital 19th century.
