One of the great conductors of our time, Carlo MariaGiulini has, like Richter, been a regular feature on BBC Legends. His best sellers on the label have been choral notably two Verdi Requiems (BBCL40292 and BBC41442), Britten's War Requiem (BBCL40462), Bach's B Minor Mass (BBCL40622) and Faure's Requiem (BBCL42212).

The Brahms Requiem from the 1978 Edinburgh Festival has never been issued before and in fact the DG studio taping nine years later in 1987 is Giulini's only other performance on record.

The Edinburgh Festival performance from 1978 features two major international soloists - Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (baritone) and Ileana Cotrubas (soprano). Fischer-Dieskau is a legend in his own time, notably in the art of lieder, while Ileana Cotrubas is without doubt one of the great opera singers having performed most of the leading conductors including a notable La Traviata with Carlos Kleiber.

The Edinburgh Festival Chorus under John Currie was one (and still is) one of the best international choruses and appeared with Giulini on many occasions during the annual Festival.

Johannes Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem), Op. 45

I. Selig sind, die da Leid tragen

II. Denn alles Fleisch es ist wie Gras

III. Herr, lehre doch mich

IV. Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen

V. Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit

VI. Denn wir haben hie keine bleibende Statt

VII. Selig sind die Toten
