Claudio Abbado conducts Mozart Requiem
Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan Memorial Concert
On the tenth anniversary of Herbert von Karajan's death, the Berliner Philharmoniker pays tribute to its late maestro in his home town of Salzburg.
In a live shooting from the city's imposing Cathedral, Claudio Abbado conducts an all-Mozart programme, honouring his predecessor both by the careful selection of the music and singers. Mozart's Requiem is sung by some of the best present-day soloists including Karita Mattila (soprano) and Bryn Terfel (bass), together with the Swedish Radio Choir. For those who do not know him, Michael Schade in the tenor part will be a fine surprise. A performance that in every respect meets Karajan's own high artistic standards.
