JOHANNES BRAHMS - A German Requiem


JOHANNES BRAHMS - A German Requiem - Christiane Libor (Soprano) - Thomas E. Bauer (Baritone) - Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir - Antoni Wit (Conductor) - 730099003964 - Released: April 2014 - Naxos Blu-ray Audio Disc NBD0039

I've said this before and I will say it again. Every time you have a recording project that combines conductor Antoni Wit, the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir and the Naxos label, the end result is magic. Add to this the fact that this 24-bit, Stereo and Surround High Definition Blu-ray recording lets you hear the air around the singers and musicians, and feel the three-dimensionality of the space they occupy, and you can actually grasp the depth and scope of the forces involved in this performance. When the Requiem ends, I feel as if I've just witnessed, and been part of, a solemn occasion and special event. Enough said!
