Recorded at a performance at the Salzburg Festival given in the Aula Academica on 27th August, 1950. Initially released on Remington in the USA and on Concerteum in France (1952).
A magnificent performance of the Sussmayr completion of Mozart's Requiem, conducted with real style and insight by Joseph Messner, who led music at Salzburg Cathedral from 1926 onwards, and was a regular conductor at the Salzburg Festival until 1967. Here he is joined by an excellent team of soloists, and the Salzburg Cathedral Choir and Mozarteum Orchestra in top form. The clear recording probably originated from Austrian Radio.
