Herbert von Karajan’s 1975 Mozart Requiem is of the grand ceremonial type with large choral forces and full orchestra accompaniment–all of which sounds quite massive compared to more recent period-style performances.

The present recording’s spacious reverberation enhances the feeling of bigness, and with it the sense of occasion. Karajan’s tempos are on the slow side, especially by today’s standards, but he generates much anger and sonic power in the Dies Irae.

Mozart’s Requiem in D minor has been shrouded in mystery for more than 220 years. In the past few decades, much research has been done to dispel some of the mystery and give relevance to the facts surrounding this wondrous work. The Requiem was commissioned anonymously though an intermediary by Count Franz von Walsegg.

It is important to note that, during the last 6 months of his life, Mozart devoted most of his time to Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), La clemenza di Tito (completed in 18 days), the Little Masonic Cantata, and the Requiem in D minor. Due to time constraints, he was not able to work exclusively on the Requiem.
