This Polish performance of the Mozart/Süssmayr Requiem was recorded at the Norbertine Sisters Church on Salvator in Cracow in April 2014. This is an accomplished choir and orchestra, added to which is a distinguished line-up of soloists who blend together beautifully in a building with good acoustics. In fact, here are all the ingredients for a very fine performance, and yet… this never really gets offthe ground. It’s a very pedestrian performance that lacks inspired direction, and the performers are not given the opportunity to do justice to either Mozart or his pupil Süssmayr.
