Dudamel makes Mozart and Arvo Pärt a matter of life and death

“Dudamel led “Miserere” pitilessly. He took nothing for granted, refused to soften what is hard and required each sound to undergo the test of time. He gave Mozart’s Requiem operatic expression but again little comfort. Mozart’s Dies Irae needed a rage to match Pärt, and that meant that everything else had to be raised to that kind of emotional level as well. With Pärt setting the stage, Dudamel’s grim yet profound acceptance of the implications the Requiem ultimately proved vivid illustration of what made Mozart Mozart, and hence what makes each thing itself.”
