MUSICAETERNA THE NEW SIBERIAN SINGERS CURRENTZIS
Mozart’s Requiem is a supreme masterpiece of the history of music and a work inextricably bound up with the Mozartian legend. Now Alpha’s recording of it under the direction of Teodor Currentzis is given a new lease of life in a vinyl reissue. A fascinating, gripping reading, served by a magnificent line-up of soloists – Simone Kermes, Stephanie Houtzeel, Markus Brutscher and Arnaud Richard – and the excellence of the Siberian chorus and orchestra MusicAeterna. This was one of the first recordings of the Greek conductor, based in Russia since the 1990s, who is now an emblematic and iconoclastic figure in the interpretation of Mozart and of classical music in general.
