HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Antonin Dvorak – Requiem (Kertesz)

front_small_boxsetDvorak’s Requiem should be as well-known as those of Verdi, Brahms, Berlioz, and Mozart. Though it is not as tuneful as the Verdi, it is powerful, lyrical, and dramatic. This recording came out on LP in the early ’70s and has been hailed as the definitive one almost since it appeared. The sound is superb, and the newcomer to this music, on hearing this, is bound to wonder why this piece is not better-known. I wonder why every time I hear it.
