Verdi, G.: Messa da Requiem (Frittoli, Borodina, Zeffiri, Abdrazakov, Chicago Symphony Chorus and Orchestra, Muti)


Riccardo Muti coaxes a memorable, multi-GRAMMY® winning performance of Verdi's Requiem from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and soloists. SACD.net said, "On this recording Muti's dramatic conception is characterised in musical terms both by his incandescent 'Dies Irae', full of rage and elemental power, and his joyous forthright 'Sanctus', among the fastest and most thrilling on record."
Berlin Classics: 0016422BC
Handel, G.F.: Opera Arias (La Diva) (Kermes)


Simone Kermes dedicates her formidable talents to these Handel Arias originally composed for Frencesca Cuzzoni. Known as 'Queen of the Baroque' hers is a voice capable of delivering all the dramatic emotion the music requires, yet possessing all the control required for such technical feats. Sensitivity between voice and orchestra are first rate.
Naxos: 8.572454
Saint-Saens, C.: String Quartets Nos. 1 and 2 (Fine Arts Quartet)


"Saint-Saëns's two string quartets find persuasive champions in the Fine Arts Quartet. Embracing Classical models and acknowledging the example of Mozart, the influences are refracted through Saint-Saëns's own lyrical and harmonic prism, and each work is as carefully crafted as it is extremely pleasurable to hear."
- Daily Telegraph
