This is Sir Charles Mackerras' first recording of the Mozart Requiem. His history in conducting Mozart is considerable - he is acclaimed as one of the world's greatest living Mozarteans.
Originally released in 2003, ‘Mozart: Requiem (Levin Edition)’ has been re-issued as part of Linn’s Echo series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label’s award-winning catalogue.
This recording of Mozart's Requiem uses the score prepared by Harvard professor Robert Levin, aiming to improve on Franz Süssmayr's familiar edition by making the music closer to what Mozart might have written.
Upon release, this recording was named a ‘Benchmark Recording’ by BBC Music Magazine and was exceptionally well received by the critics.
Conrad Wilson described a live performance as ‘stark and sombre, yet shot through with sudden flashes of light...presented with the highest clarity with the SCO Chorus in deep incisive voice, and with... an expressive team of soloists.’
