Mozart did not write the Requiem as despairing funeral music for his impending death. Rather, the piece proclaims eternal light and redemption. Together with a first-class quartet of soloists, the choirs of the Bavarian and Swedish radios and the distinguished musicians of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA, Claudio Abbado uncovers this more hopeful and forgiving essence of the Requiem.
