Notes and Editorial Reviews
Glossa is reissuing this recording which exemplifies the label's efforts as well as being a memorable reflection of the artistry of the Orchestra of the 18th Century and its conductor, Frans Brüggen. An extended and beautiful introduction to the principal work is created by performances of the Murerische Trauermusik and the Adagio for Two Clarinets and Three Basset Horns, before Brüggen directs a starling and impressive reading of the Requiem. The Metropolitan Space of Tokyo surely experienced an occasion of true magic back in March 1998, which was perfectly captured by the NHK Television microphones and can now be enjoyed once more.
