Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.
This version of Mozart's REQUIEM is a wonderfully realized interpretation that is regarded as being among the very best reworkings of the great composer's works. Presented here in a pristine sound mix, this is a chance to hear an amazing piece with a clarity not previously believed possible. Part of a series of classical releases from the Decca/Philips stable, the attention to detail paid to the audio mix should delight music fans, and provide a welcome introduction to any newcomers looking to experience the work of Mozart for the first time.
