Recordings of the Verdi Requiem

I promised last week to recommend some recordings and rehearsal tapes/midis/MP3s/CDs for the Verdi Requiem.

Well I’m sorry there hasn’t been time yet to research rehearsal tapes.

However my sources (Mr Keith Barton) have recommended this recording among the plethora of different recordings now available:-

Antonio Pappano on EMI Classics with the orchestra and choir of Santa Cecilia.

EMI No 5099969893629

Great performance, great soloists …

One thought on “Recordings of the Verdi Requiem

  1. Check out the free rehearsal audio at CyberBass:
    http://www.cyberbass.com/Major_Works/Verdi_G/verdi.htm
    Click on your part to hear it played on piano, with the other parts quietly in the background and rudimentary accompaniment. You can listen as often as you want on the site, but can’t download the files (unless you have some sneaky software that grabs the audio as it’s playing; but I didn’t say that).
