Description: Salieri's 39-minute Requiem, whose dark trombones and rumbling kettledrums look forward to Verdi's version, was one of the few such pieces written by the composer for himself (meaning that, in this case, it had to wait 21 years for performance). Gulbenkian Chorus and Orchestra; Lawrence Foster. SACD hybrid
