5.0 out of 5 stars A great release of Fauré's Requiem, 11 Oct 2009
This review is from: Faure: Requiem (Audio CD)
I just came across this recording of the requiem searching among other naïve titles. I don't like to be especially add to any discographic company, but I'm much in agreement with the way naïve works, when it comes to innovation in design, also musically speaking, of course.

This recording matches excellence in every sense. Accentus is a formidable choir, their sound is impecable and extremely musical, their latin highly understandable and bright. The soloists join also the great musicality of the choir. Piau gives a very pure version of Pie Jesu, with few vibrato and no mannerism, that works very well. And Degout brings two fantastic solos, whith non-operatic delicacy and perfect volume. Also under the baton of Equilbey, the 56 members orchestra plays accurately and clear, very tender and chamber-like.

The result is an excellent interpretation of the requiem. No forced dynamics, not a note out place; and very different from the most known and played version for full orchestra.

And to end with even better taste, a magnifique Cantique de Jean Racine, just to make you drop a little tear.
