Description

This new recording features an all-star cast, complete with one of today’s greatest Verdians, Jonas Kaufmann, whose interpretation of the work’s sublime tenor solos captivate the ear. It also connects directly with the great Verdi legacy cultivated by the Orchestra of Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, scene of the Requiem’s first concert presentation in May 1874 and of many legendary performances since.

 

Soprano Anja Harteros, mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča and the mighty bass René Pape here join forces with Jonas Kaufmann to form a dream team of soloists. The excellence and subtle insights of their work are underpinned by compelling choral singing from the Chorus of La Scala and electrifying playing from Maestro Barenboim’s Milanese orchestral musicians.
