5.0 out of 5 stars Who was Cherubini? Ask Brahms!, 3 July 2008
This review is from: Cherubini: Requiem/Marche funèbre (Audio CD)
"Cherubini was the great master from whom everything had proceeded..." So said Brahms in 1896 - just after looking at the portrait of him he had in his Vienna apartment. I figured that this is a pretty good recommendation, so bought this CD.

Cherubini is pretty unknown nowadays, unfairly, in my view. This Naxos CD contains the 1816 Requiem in C minor and the Marche funebre from 1820, beautifully sung and played by some lengthily-titled Italians. Apt, as Cherubini was from Florence.

I'm not so religious myself, but enjoy this type of music as art. This is high art, and I can hear lots of Cherubini influence on Brahms (Berlioz was a fan, too), in his Deutsche Requiem, for example.

A distictive and overlooked voice, Cherubini is certainly worth trying at this price. Highly recommended.

I heard this on the recent composer of the week - thought it was mendelson because of the harmonic richness of the music! Beautiful.
