Gardiner knows not to push the music,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart: Requiem; Kyrie in D minor (Audio CD)
I was recommended this disc, and I like it very much. What stroke me, was Gardiners ability to *not* push the music. It breathes naturally, which I think suits the music very well. Many of the "hidden lines" are heard because of his not pushing, and not using to much sound in the orchestra. The chorus are delivering a subtle and articulated account. Barbara Bonney delivers some beautiful phrasing indeed ! Highly recommended.
