About this Recording

MOZART: Requiem in D Minor (Tassinari, Tagliavini, De Sabata) (1941)

Recorded over two days in the grand surroundings of the Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli, Rome in 1941, this performance of the Requiem was part of Italian Radio’s Commemorative Ceremony for the 150th Anniversary of the death of Mozart. It features not only some of the finest Italian singers of the day but the combined Italian Radio orchestras and choirs from Rome and Turin, under the inspired baton of Victor De Sabata. An immediate hit both in Italy and abroad, this recording of the Requiem documents both a unique occasion in the history of Italian Radio and a very Italian, intensely sensual and tragic interpretation.
