The Collegium Vocale Gent, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and Philippe Herreweghe join forces once again for a monument of the sacred choral repertoire: Antonín Dvorák’s Requiem, Op. 89. This work, dating from 1890, is one of those that marked a new phase in the composer’s musical creation, in which he recognized himself ‘as much a poet as well as a musician’. In addition, this reveals the veritable nature of a composer without constraint, probably being neither a commission nor an occasional work. Philippe Herreweghe offers us an interpretation as dense and concentrated as the writing of this masterpiece requires.
