(Christopher Hogwood - lending authenticity to the podium)

Today's concert is from earlier last week (April 1), live and direct from Torino, Italy and featuring the RAI Radio symphony, guest conducted by Christopher Hogwood leading a program of Haydn and Mozart. First up (the player just above) is a performance of Haydn's Symphony Nr.104. Second (the player below) is a complete performance of the Mozart Requiem K.626 with soloists Rachel Harnisch, soprano - Rosa Bove, contralto - Jorg Schneider, teno - Christof Fischesser, bass and Ruggero Maghini Chorus of Torino led by Claudio Chivazza.

A pretty nice performance all the way around. It's complete and the announcements (which I've edited down to a minimum) are in Italian.
