Edition by Franz Beyer, Sanctus completed by Robert Levin

Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Choir & Swedish Radio Choir
"This video of Claudio Abbado and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, with his handpicked musicians, from 2012 meets up to the high standards needed for this piece, one of the
greatest vocal works in the repertoire. No surprise. The Maestro, though relatively unheralded when compared to von Karajan or Bernstein has consistently led performances that hold their own with those of the more famous masters of the 20th century and since. Equally compelling are all of the voices and, too, the video presentation here. Never weak, always clear in form and with deep emotion, this disc is like a shining light that will burn forever. Not true, alas, for the Maestro, who left this world in 2014. It is our great loss ,as this becomes, as it had for Mozart himself, his own requiem. But it is only his mortal coil that has left us. The light of his spirit will indeed live on, leading those who listen, to the glories of some of the most beautiful and profound music ever written, and ever heard. RIP to Maestro Abbado, one of those rare ones in whose hands a baton was like a magic wand that elicited beauty that touched the soul. He will always be remembered as one of the greats, always be missed. This disc is a an example of why, like a monument to Mozart, and to him."’ Amazon.com reviewer.
