Re: Moore Verdi Requiem please !
Many thanks for your thoughts, Lee. I've made a start and have already listened to the Markevitch which I find rather gruesome from a vocal point of view but, as you say, very excitingly - if excessively - directed. I currently plan to include around twenty-six recordings, including the three from Karajan, half a dozen from Toscanini, a couple from de Sabata, the Wunderlich/Müller-Kray, Cantelli, van Kempen and a good few more. It won't be totally comprehensive but at least representative; I especially wanted to include the lone Tebaldi recording where she is remarkable. It is, as you say, a bit daunting, but absorbing - so I don't know when it will be done.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
