This recording spans music from the composer’s early days and his Requiem, overflowing with humanity, and ends in the days of the musician’s maturity, with his expansive view of nature that supports the echo of the mourning bells, analogous to prayer. Perhaps, unexpectedly, the disc offers, a glimpse of a rare artist’s whole life.
