BOTTESINI, G.: Messa da Requiem (Matheu, Coma-Alabert, Prunell-Friend, Martinez-Castignani, Joyful Company of Singers, London Philharmonic, T. Martin)

Renowned worldwide in his lifetime and remembered today as a double bass virtuoso, Giovanni Bottesini excelled in every branch of musicianship, but his operas and sacred works were overshadowed by those of Verdi and have fallen into neglect. Composed in response to the death of his brother Luigi, Bottesini’s large scale Requiem combines ecclesiastical counterpoint with formal innovation and the expressive lyricism and dramatic orchestration of operatic models.
