Dunedin Consort / John Butt
The Dunedin Consort presents the premiere recording of Mozart scholar David Black's new 2013 edition of Süssmayr's completion of Mozart's Requiem.
In keeping with several other Dunedin projects, this provides the opportunity to re-imagine what this work may have sounded like at its very first performance.
To this end, the recording will be the first not only to use this new edition, but also to present the work using forces close in style and scale to those at the first performances.
One striking element of these performances is the fact that the soloists are also the leaders of the choir, thus giving a greater consistency to the relationship between the solo numbers and the choruses.
Dunedin Consort seeks to resurrect Süssmayr's much maligned edition to its place and worth in history.
The pressing is on 180 gram vinyl and is manufactured by the prestigious Pallas firm in Germany, which is highly regarded by vinyl lovers everywhere.
The Dunedin Consort has established a reputation as one of the finest period performance choirs around, under the direction of prize-winning historical performance specialist John Butt OBE.
The multi-award-winning Dunedin Consort has won praise for the natural style of its soloists and renown for the virtuosity of its singers.
The Dunedin Consort has won two Gramophone Awards: the 2007 'Baroque Vocal' Award for Handel: Messiah and the 2014 'Choral' Award for Mozart: Requiem.
Further accolades include: Esther was voted one of the 'Top 10 Classical Albums of 2012' by The Times, 2011 saw them included in Gramophone's 'Twenty Greatest Choirs' list and its recording of Bach's Matthew Passion was named Building A Library: First Choice by BBC Radio 3 'CD Review', whilst Six Brandenburg Concertos was named Gramophone 'Choice' and awarded five stars by both BBC Music Magazine and The Guardian.
