A stand-out Requiem

It takes a special recording to stand out from all the many versions of Verdi Requiem and this is it. Davis’s years of experience and symbiotic relationship with the LSO makes a real difference here. The punch of the Dies Irae, the following lines of the Lacrymosa delivered by the always stunning Christine Brewer. Fantastic performance, fantastic recording.

Magnificent

Simply the finest Verdi Requiem to come along for a very long time. The soloists make an exceptionally fine ensemble (Brewer is superlative) and Davis is in a class of his own when it comes to big choral works.

What happened Sir Davis?

This is far from special. While the chorus is passable, the LSO misses the mark. The playing is too stilted, lifeless, and over all very boring. There are better versions out there and Davis has done better work in recent past (his Berlioz comes to mind). I wanted to like this recording but found myself in pain half way through. Slower is not always better and this is living proof, especially with the LSO making flub after flub. Davis is capable enough so lets hold on tight until his next release.
