About

ATMA Classique is reissuing one of Les Violons du Roy’s seminal discs: the orchestra’s recording of Mozart’s Requiem as revised and completed by Robert D Levin. This recording was originally released on the Dorian label in 2002, and won the JUNO Award for Best Classical Album of the year in the vocal or choral performance category.

This recording of Mozart’s Requiem is especially poignant, as it was made in Troy, New York in the week following the September 11 attacks in 2001. The recording captures the emotion and immediacy of that special performance, which was later featured on CBC Television’s Opening Night. The Globe & Mail wrote about “an appreciation of the transcendent aspects of the Requiem as a work of art that is about death, survival and the possibility of an afterlife. There is the magnificence of the music, so often used to solemnly mark terrible tragedy and bring solace.”
