    Simon Rattle's Brahms Requiem surely deserves an award.Rattle came up with one of the most enjoyable recordings of this great piece.It is very surprising because i am not usually a fan of Rattle,especially in German repertoire.However it is to compete against Riccardo Muti's account of Cherubini's Missa Solemnis which is also a very fine effort.Playing of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra is wonderful as always and Muti is probably the most sympathetic conductor to Cherubini,a firebrand in Italian repertoire.
    So i will await the winner of that catagory to be announced,eagerly

    I'm with Kromme - Rattle's rendition of Brahms "Ein Deutsches Requiem" deserves an award. Personally, I think its worth the Gold Prize.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Hi Ms RoJo,

    Thanx for your compliment. It is so nice to see you back again and posting on the forum - your gentle and awe-inspiring demeanor makes my heart go pitter-pat. Hey, before its too late for me where I live - Happy Valentines Day to my dear colleague Ms. RoJo.

    Cheers,

    CD
