This new release introduces two Requiems. The first is a German Requiem by Johannes Brahms in an unusual version translated into Italian and performed at RAI in Turin in April 1954 with a stellar cast including soprano Rosanna Carters and bass Boris Christoff conducted by the great master Bruno Walter. The other track is the Giuseppe Verdi Requiem performed in Salzburg in September 1949. The presence of Boris Christoff in both pieces is the guiding thread that connects the two works. In the Verdi, other singers include Hilde Zadek, Margarete Klose, and Helge Roswaenge. They are accompanied by the Wiener Philharmoniker conducted by the great Herbert von Karajan.
