Product description

Product Description

Renowned worldwide in his lifetime and remembered today as a double bass virtuoso, Giovanni Bottesini excelled in every branch of musicianship, but his operas and sacred works were overshadowed by those of Verdi and have fallen into neglect. Composed in response to the death of his brother Luigi, Bottesini's large scale Requiem combines ecclesiastical counterpoint with formal innovation and the expressive lyricism and dramatic orchestration of operatic models.

With double bass virtuoso Thomas Martin stepping into conductor's shoes in Bottesini's unjustly neglected Requiem, this is one of our major releases of the season, which will be sure to generate wide interest. With an extremely strong set of soloists, The Joyful Company of Singers' conviction and a real depth of feeling (Gramophone on 8.557783, Williamson Choral Music), and the renowned London Philharmonic Orchestra, this is a large-scale work to stand alongside Verdi's famous Requiem, but by contrast having the CD market entirely to itself.

Review

The work's great gem, the Quid sum miser [is] beautifully sung by the tenor Agustin Prunell-Friend. It's worth buying the disc just to enjoy this aria...the other soloists give equally operatic and distinguished performances. The JCOS are also on splendid form...An enjoyable piece, well worth exploring. --Gramophone June 2013

"The orchestral sound is well caught, and Bottesini has written some stirring music…The soprano Marta Matheu has a shine in her voice, enabling her to climb above the orchestra." --International Record Review, July 2013
