“Muti delivers his characteristic energy to this music . . . most compelling in thrust and concentration.” — The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

“No conductor is quite so persuasive an interpreter of Cherubini as Riccardo Muti,” says Gramophone. Luigi Cherubini — revered by Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms — was born in Florence, but moved to Paris before the French Revolution. In these monumental works, Muti sees “an extremely cultivated, neo-Classical composer — an architect of composition . . . At first his music’s beauty can seem cold, but there is an internal fire that is kept under control.” Over 7 discs, hear the rich choral music of the Italian composer, conducted by two of the day’s leading conductors: Riccardo Muti and Sir Neville Marriner.
