5.0 out of 5 stars A fine Verdi Requiem is worth the price of this entire package. 10 Jan. 2015
By pekinman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am writing only in favor of this Verdi Requiem recording. If the Brahms and Beethoven masses are half as great as Barenboim's Verdi then do not hesitate. Even if those other two are not-so-great this set would be worth the price just for this magnificent Verdi Requiem. It is a shame that Erato has not kept this individually available in its catalogue. But they are part of the Warner Industries now so those days are probably long gone. One thing though, since these were all Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus recordings you can rest assured that the quality of the musical side will be top drawer. And Barenboim had some of his greatest moments in Chicago.

First of all Erato has come up with one of the most spectacular sonic experiences in my listening career. I worked with that orchestra during the Solti years and have heard many live and recorded performances in that (once) difficult concert hall (it tended to be dry and Solti often refused to record there preferring the Masonic shrine up town). But Erato went in new with Barenboim and figured it out. This is one of the finest Verdi Requiems on record in every sense.

I am no great fan of Daniel Barenboim's Wagner or Mozart, though he was more convincing in the latter, especially his Cosi fan tutte (also with Erato), but he was surprisingly effective in other repertoire. I hope that he goes further into the Verdi operas because he seems to shine in the Italian world more so than the Germanic (Wagner and Bruckner) which is surprising, given his very great popularity amongst the younger set in those German works.

This Verdi Requiem is one of his greatest Chicago recordings, maybe THE greatest. It was also one of the last of Margaret Hillis's recordings with her marvelous Chicago Symphony Chorus. It would be boring to detail the many great moments of this recording. The orchestra and chorus are splendid, the soloists, mostly, ditto, and the Erato engineering is spectacular. Barenboim is a great Verdian. What more is there to be said.

My only slight quibble would be that Waltraud Meier lacks the gonzo edge of other mezzos in this role, notably Oralia Dominguez for Ference Fricsay on his no-longer-available second live recording from Berlin in 1960, or Agnes Baltsa for Muti in 1979 (EMI).

Beyond that I have nothing but kudos for the soloists, notably Ferruccio Furlanetto's dark and glowing bass. Alessandra Marc does NOT scoop as was her wont in those days. And Domingo pulls her naturally powerful and charismatic voice back in order to blend as an ensemble.
A very fine team of soloists.

I'd recommend taking a chance on the Beethoven and Brahms pieces with this set simply on the power of the Verdi and Erato's magnificent engineering in Orchestra Hall in Chicago.
