Mozart's Requiem is one of my favorite pieces of music. Something I have been passionate about for years. I bought this recording on the strength of the orchestra and conductor and was sadly disappointed with it.
The orchestra and choir seem, somehow, to be disjointed and performing apart. This rendition lacks the punch, fire and brimstone that you expect from the Requiem, and in places feels a bit sloppy. That said I don't think the recording itself helped the performance.
If you want a copy of the Requiem to stir the soul I would choose a different version.
