VerdiCD-thumb.jpgVerdi Requiem CD

The NJSO released a live album of the Orchestra’s April 2014 performance of Verdi’s Requiem with the Montclair State University Chorale and a quartet of outstanding vocal soloists.

It’s a compelling take on the work, from the solemn tone and the velvety strings of the first phrases leading into a delicate, reverent Kyrie. The slashing power, impressively clean strings and powerful, controlled brass in the Dies Irae build to as a fearsome Liber Scriptus and dramatic conclusion.

– The Star-Ledger

The Star-Ledger hailed the Requiem performance: “From the first notes, the rendition effectively conveyed the work’s gravitas, with deep, rich weighty sound in the opening halting chords that created a feeling of being stunned by divine power and mortality … [Soprano Marianne Fiset], the chorus and the orchestra mustered a shattering final climactic outpouring of sound evoking the cosmic before returning to a simple, unison chant, taking the work touchingly back to a humble, human realm.”
