Schnittke: Réquiem


Russian composer Alfred Schnittke wrote his Requiem in the mid-1970s as incidental music for a play (Schiller's Don Carlos). The influence of Shostakovich is evidenced in the “polystylistic” nature of Schnittke's compositions, which challenged authority by showing that art could not be controlled nor disciplined. One of the most striking aspects of this Requiem is its eccentric instrumentation: an acoustic ensemble of trumpet, trombone, celesta, piano and organ that is joined by electric bass guitar, electric guitar and a percussion arsenal that includes a drum set.
