5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found this on Youtube and I immediately thought : I have to hear this in better quality !
What a performance by the late Claudio Abbado, who must have known that it was probably the last time he was going to conduct this requiem. The balance between orchestra and choir is just perfect, no way of knowing if this perfect balance is due to the audio engineers that have recorded this or if this was as good live in the concerthall.
The soloist are sublime too, especially the soprano !! And the woodwind section of the orchestra is just amazing. Special praise to the person who merged the two radio choirs and made them sound as one !!
