Podcast: Mayr’s remarkable Requiem

December 4, 2015

Being a contemporary of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven was both a blessing and a curse for Simon Mayr: while he was able to deftly assimilate and rival the triumvirate’s output, he became overshadowed by them in posterity. Raymond Bisha presents the world première recording of Mayr’s Requiem in G minor, a stunning blend of Germanic construction and Italianate vocalism, that makes some amends for the work’s undue neglect over the centuries.
