This is a new performance of one of the most emblematic music works ever created - composed in Mozart's final year and unfinished, the work is still today shrouded in mystery. It is the debut recording of Insula Orchestra, a new formation (on period instruments) co-founded in 2012 by Laurence Equilbey.
Along with an impressive range of soloists and Accentus, one of the leading European choirs, also founded by Laurence Equilbey 20 years ago, they offer an intense and stylish interpretation of Mozart's Requiem, recorded in the Chapelle Royale of Château de Versailles.
Laurence Equilbey, the conductor and music director of Insula orchestra and Accentus, is today highly regarded for her artistic rigour and open-minded approach. With Accentus, Laurence Equilbey continues to explore the large repertory of vocal music and to support contemporary creation. Their numerous recordings on Naive have received widespread critical acclaim. She is also artistic and pedagogical director of the training department for young singers at the CRR in Paris.
In 2012, with the support of the Conseil Général des Hauts-de-Seine, she founded Insula Orchestra, a period-instrument group dedicated to the Classical and pre-Romantic repertoire. This is its first recording.
