Ανάμεσα στις εκτελέσεις του Requiem του Mozart ξεχώριζα πάντα εκείνην του Karl Bohm με τη Φιλαρμονική της Βιέννης. Εκτός των άλλων, για τον ανεπανάληπτα επιβλητικό χαρακτήρα που δίνει στο Confutatis, κρατώντας το σε ένα τέμπο πολύ πιο αργό από όσων μαέστρων που έχω ακούσει. Ακούμε δυο αποσπάσματα από το μνημειώδες, επιθανάτιο, ημιτελές έργο του Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Karl Riddersbusch – μπάσος. Wieslaw Ochman – τενόρος. Julia Hamari – κοντράλτο. Edith Mathis – σοπράνο. Την χορωδία της Όπερας της Βιέννης διευθύνει ο Norbert Balatsch. Ο Karl Bohm διευθύνει τη Φιλαρμονική της Βιέννης.

Among the various interpretations of Mozart’s Requiem I always favored the one of Karl Bohm with the Vienna Philharmonic. Among other reasons, for the unprecedentedly imposing air he gives Confutatis, picking a tempo much slower than any other maestro I’ve heard. So here are two excerpts from the monumental work Wolfgang Amadeus wrote, and left unfinished, in his dying bed. Karl Riddersbusch – bass. Wieslaw Ochman – tenor. Julia Hamari – contralto. Edith Mathis – soprano. The Vienna Opera Choir is conducted by Norbert Balatsch. Karl Bohm conducts the Vienna Philharmonic.

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
