Requiem / Choral Works: Lukasz Borowicz / RIAS Kammerchor / Akademie fot Alte Musik / Accentus CD
On March 14, 1849, 24-year-old Anton Bruckner finished his
first major vocal composition and his only Requiem. It was created during his work in St. Florian. Some references to older models and some stylistic incongruities in musical stature still refer to the phase of self-discovery of the young composer. But those who listen closely will certainly discover the passages in which the mystical aura and sublimity of the large orchestral scores shine through already.
After the Missa Solemnis, released in February 2018, this recording marks the second step in the journey of discovery into the cosmos of Anton Bruckner’s seldom heard early works.
Recorded at the Philharmonie Berlin, Chamber Music Hall in November, 2018
A co-production with Deutschlandfunk Kultur and ROC-GmbH
