Description

This special collection brings together thrilling performances of four choral masterpieces under the baton of four legendary conductors: Steinberg’s nuanced and expressive account of Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, the electrifying drama of Verdi’s and Berlioz’s Requiems brought to the fore by Markevitch and Mitropoulos, and a magisterial live BBC Proms performance of Mahler’s Das klagende Lied conducted by Rozhdestvensky. These recordings won wide critical acclaim on their first release: Gramophone hailed Mitropoulous’s Berlioz as ‘remarkable’, while The Guardian declared Markevitch’s Verdi Requiem to be ‘one of the great interpretations’.
