Mozart Requiem: John Eliot Gardiner
on 13 September 2017
This version of the requiem benefits from the expert control of the orchestra and singers by the renowned John Eliot Gardiner, who is no stranger to conducting religious works. Although the soloists, on the whole, perform well, I would have liked the soprano to have sung with more volume, since to me her voice came over a bit thin. On the other hand I was pleased to have the much celebrated Willard White included in the soloists as I regard him as one of the best bass singers of the modern era. I consider this requiem to be one the greatest works of its type ever written.
