Gramophone praised the ‘fine soloists’, especially the ‘resonance and ease’ of the bass-baritone, David Wilson-Johnson. The review also acclaimed the ‘sheer generosity of style and sound’ as well as the choir and orchestra, ‘excellent and well-balanced, both in themselves and with each other’. Overall, the ‘Hickox gives a remarkably satisfying performance’.
Despite its large-scale conception, Brahms’s Requiem remains the product of a very private world, the personal communication of the philosophy of one man, ‘such a great soul – and yet he doesn’t believe in anything’, as Dvořák once remarked.
Richly endowed with musical qualities, Richard Hickox was a great champion of neglected music in general, and of British music in particular. His sudden death in November 2008 robbed the world of a most vital, industrious, and energising musician, whose discographical legacy remains a treasure trove of the record catalogue. With the Richard Hickox Legacy we wish to express our gratitude to and appreciation of this great musical artist.
