Requiem. A tough topic: Monumental, reflexive, inspired and spirited. When one sees such title, expectations are high. But this time we will not be left disappointed. The suite takes you to the slow paced beautiful journey through imaginary world of massive orchestra arranges. Sounds and melodies in all voices are carefully layered and instrumented, giving always proper mood. Pain, sorrow, but also hope and glory -- all there when they're needed.And now for the technicalities: It is hard to believe, it is not live recording. I mean -- maybe the strings have this peculiar synth vibe, but are by no means flat. And what deserves special attention, showing, that behind spark and talent there is perfect craftsmanship and hard work, are all the choir and vocal solo parts: It needs several replays and careful ear to notice it is in fact vocaloid-like speech synthesis. If You're not yet impressed by the absolute quality of music by itself, this should throw You on the knees. Kudos. Hats off. Nine stars [+++++++++-]. This would be perfect album, when recorded in concert, I'd like it to be performed by Wiener Philharmoniker directed by David Zimman.
