The ultimate interpretation of Verdi's Requiem.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Verdi : Messa Da Requiem [DVD]  (DVD)
I must agree with all other reviewers, as after obtaining all interpretation of this work over many years and comparing them carefully, I can state categorically that this Abbado's surpass them all. Go for it confidantely.
It does not lack in any necessary ingredient for good listening to a work of this magnificence. The Sound above all is so vivid, helping the fire of music to be effictive, with a very capable orchestra and conductor (unfortunately Abbado was recovering from illness at that time and looked emaciated). Also the four singers and the chorus were all truely enchanting.
In fact having obtained recently many of the other interpretaions (because I truly love this piece), this renewed in me my love for this particular Abbado's interpretation, it is simlpy my treasure.
