Mozart: Requiem / Accentus
Equilbey; Insula Orchestra; Accentus; Piau; Mingardo; Güra; Purves
Composed by: Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
This new performance of one of Mozart’s, and indeed music’s most emblematic works ever written is the debut recording of Insula Orchestra, a new period-instrument formation co-founded in 2012 by Laurence Equilbey. Along with an impressive range of soloists - Sandrine Piau, Sara Mingardo, Werner Güra and Christopher Purves - and Accentus, the leading European choir also founded by Laurence Equilbey twenty years ago, they offer an intense and stylish performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Composed in his final year and left unfinished, the work is still today shrouded in mystery.
