Mozart's Finale: The Requiem K. 626

A whole world of myth has grown up around Mozart's mysterious Requiem.

Nicholas Kenyon of the BBC joins PT host Fred Child to help us unravel its mysteries.

Kenyon's favorite recording of the Requiem is on the Philips label (B0005520-02). It's a recording Kenyon says "unlocks the power of Mozart's Requiem without taking it out of its 18th century framework."

Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducts the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists with soprano Barbara Bonney, alto Anne Sofie von Otter, tenor Hans Peter Blochwitz and bass Willard White.
