Verdi Requiem from the Hague

Mrp1

This is a wonderful recording of this thrilling work by Verdi. The four soloists are outstanding, including an English Tenor, yes English, but you may not think so when you listen. I was taught by Alexander Young a highly underrated tenor, at his peak during the 50's, 60's and 70's.He also greatly admired Jussi Bjorling the tenor soloist on the Toscanni recording.Because the 'Hague' recording is later, technically it also sounds better. Overall the 4 soloists I feel are better, beautiful soprano and mezzo, as you hear in the Agnus Dei and Recordare. To complete the quartet of soloists is one of the finest basses on record since the 2nd world war, Martti Talvela,just listen to the 'Confutatis', his range and vocal resonance is just awesome. This whole recording ranks alongside the Karajan version with Schwarzkopf,Ludwig, Gedda and the bass Ghiuarov,who is also superb but I would place Talvela just slightly better. The chorus/orchestras in all three recordings are excellent but the later
