“[Muti] certainly runs the full gamut of emotions, as does his blazing and immaculately trained chorus, which sounds as if it understands the full import and context of every word of the Latin text, projecting the widest dynamic range and nuance. All-purpose fervour and sanctimonious rhetoric are mercifully off-limits.” — International Record Review

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a glorious achievement”, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and music director Riccardo Muti perform Verdi’s Requiem Mass, featuring the Chicago Symphony Chorus and four outstanding soloists.  Winner of two Grammy® Awards including Best Classical Album and Best Choral Performance, this stunning performance brilliantly captures both the pathos and passion of Verdi’s masterpiece. “[Muti’s] profound sense of the score and his mastery of the CSO forces are fully evident."
