Gramophone ROTM


Gramophone Recording of the Month: 
‘Purely on grounds of performance alone, this is one of the finest Mozart Requiems of recent years. It is Butt's minute attention to these details, though, that makes this such a thrilling performance.' 

Gramophone 'Top 10 Recent Mozart Recordings' (April 2015)

'No. 5 in the Top 20 Classical Albums of 2014' Amazon.co.uk 


This GRAMMY-nominated recording provides the opportunity to re-imagine what this work may have sounded like at its very first performance and won Dunedin Consort its second Gramophone Award. The recording is the first not only to use this new edition, but also to present the work using forces close in style and scale to those at the first performances.

One striking element of these performances is the fact that the soloists are also the leaders of the choir, thus giving a greater consistency to the relationship between the solo numbers and the choruses. Taking centre stage are soloists Joanne Lunn soprano, Rowan Hellier alto, Thomas Hobbs tenor and Matthew Brook bass-baritone.

The pressing is on 180 gram vinyl and is manufactured by the prestigious Pallas firm in Germany, which is highly regarded by vinyl lovers everywhere.
