---------------------------------------

 

'Pappano's conducting maintains a firm control of his forces, showing a sense of drama that includes an awareness of the importance of some crucial moments of silence. Pappano's soloists are evenly matched. Soprano Anja Harteros is beautifully controlled, while mezzo Sonia Ganassi supplies a properly Italianate lyric intensity. ...tenor Rolando Villazón displays... his regular fierce personal commitment to whatever he is singing... René Pape's bass is large and sonorous... The sound captures the work's enormously broad sound picture, as well as a sense of almost infinite receding depth in its overall perspective.'                               BBC Music Magazine, October 2009 *****

' Requiem to relish, Pappano's recording is a modern classic. …an authentically Italianate feel is important to any performance of the Requiem. Second nature to Toscanini and Giulini, it is a quality that contributes hugely to the eloquence and allure of Pappano's performance. '                                                                                                                                        Gramophone Magazine, October 2009

'a gargantuan, extraordinary performance, given by an extraordinary musical cast...Pappano, with his Italian heritage and operatic career, quite obviously has this music coursing through his veins. Recorded in concert, it catapults the listener into the concert hall with its energetic force and surging rhythms. The dramatic contrasts are magnificently worked'                           Charlotte Gardner, bbc.co.uk, 21st December 2009

'Pappano surprisingly treats the work primarily as ritual. This is a performance of measured treads and rhythms, ­advancing like some vast processional that flattens everything in its path. Its inexorability leaves you feeling jittery...The choral singing is formidable.'             The Guardian, 11th September 2009 ****

Verdi: Requiem. Pappano. 2 CD. EMI

Et requiem (latinsk) betyder dødsmesse på dansk. Der er skrevet temmelig mange af slagsen, selv om de mest kendte er af Faure, Mozart og Verdi.

Verdis Requiem er indspillet i et utal af versioner. På min personlige pladehylde står der pt. 14 versioner.

Mine klare favoritter har længe været Ferenc Fricsay's, og Carlo Maria Giulini, versioner, men de har begge en del år på bagen. Vil man have en nyere version der kunstnerisk lever op til de ovennævnte er det Antonio Pappanos version man skal vælge.

Se bare hvad The Grammophon skrev.

Requiem to relish, Pappano's recording is a modern classic. ...an authentically Italianate feel is important to any performance of the Requiem. Second nature to Toscanini and Giulini, it is a quality that contributes hugely to the eloquence and allure of Pappano's performance.

En dirigent der nærmest har opnået Karajanske dimensioner i berømmelse, er den engelsk/ italienske forholdsvis unge dirigent Sir Antonio Pappano. Han har da også lavet noget virkelig formidabelt som f.eks. denne version af Verdis Requiem, Omkring sig fik han samlet en virkelig stjernebesætning af solister..
