About this Album:
The common theme of the three works presented on these 2 CD is Death, the transience of earthly existence. Britten’s famous and substantial War Requiem was written in commemoration of the 2nd World War victims, dedicated to the people of the destroyed city of Coventry, Penderecki’s Threnody is dedicated to the victims of Hiroshima, and Alban Berg’s moving Violin Concerto is written “to the memory of an angel”, the death of the 19 year old daughter of Alma Mahler.
Performances conducted by the great East-German conductor Herbert Kegel, a specialist in 20th century masterworks. He conducts the Dresdner Philharmonie and the Leipzig Radio-Sinfonieorchester, soloists include the great Kari Lövaas and Theo Adam.
A reissue from the rich archives of Berlin Classics, treasures from the DDR.
