Info for Dvorak: Requiem, Op. 89 & Symphony No. 8, Op. 88 (Live)
Among the activities undertaken by the Vienna Singverein to commemorate its 150th anniversary during the 2008–9 season was a series of performances of Dvorák’s Requiem with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the direction of Mariss Jansons. The concert recordings of the two performances given in Amsterdam in February 2009 have been integrated here to create a captivating presentation of this rarely recorded work. On this double album release, Jansons, who has a special affinity with Dvorák’s late works, has paired the Requiem with the Eighth Symphony, composed during the period directly preceding the Requiem. Of particular note in Jansons’s interpretation of both works here is his attention to detail, a characteristic of his performances, but which in no way impedes the development of extended, overarching climaxes.
“...what impresses most about this recording is the deeply sincere approach the performers adopt, confidently allowing the work to speak for itself...The four soloists are impressive... but the real heroes here are the members of the Wiener Singverein, whose fervent singing throughout such a lengthy work is a marvellous feat.” (International Record Review)
“[Jansons] clearly understands the dynamics of this strongly unified work and nearly everywhere his tempos are well judged. He is also very well served by superb choral singing and orchestral playing that clearly relishes the work's many challenges...the first two movements [of the Symphony] are a near ideal blend of volatility and poetry.” (BBC Music Magazine)
“...it's a real performance [of the Symphony] and a worthy makeweight for a magnificent reading of the Requiem, which is a real feather in Jansons's cap” (Gramophone)
