Hugely Dramatic Requiem,
This review is from: Verdi: Requiem (Audio CD)
Friscay was DG's star conductor before the advent of Karajan and the former's untimely death. Despite sonic limitations this requiem is white hot from start to finish. Soloists all acquit themselves superbly. What a musical singer Stader makes despite a smaller than usual voice in the part. On one disc this memorable performance is a bargain, although a pity stereo wasn't available.
