Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dunedin Consort presents the premiere recording of Mozart scholar David Black’s new 2013 edition of Süssmayr’s completion of Mozart’s Requiem.

Upon naming the recording the winner of the 2014 ‘Choral’ Award, Gramophone described the recording as ‘one of the finest Mozart Requiems of recent years’. Read less
