Today, the Requiem stands as one of Berlioz’s most famous works. This massive piece is a large-scale example of Berlioz’s compositional genius and fiery sense of the dramatic, and the instrumental forces alone set the Requiem apart as one of the most ambitious compositions ever penned. This recording, with Abravanel at the helm, was considered one of the most magnificent and dramatic of its time, and the superb performances of the Utah Symphony Orchestra and University Civic Chorale find new glory in the surround mix of this theatrical piece.

DualDisc offers a multi-dimensional experience, providing audio, video and computer content on a single two-sided disc. DualDiscs have a full length CD on one side and a DVD on the other. The DVD side can feature video, the full album in surround sound and/or enhanced stereo, plus photos and lyrics. DualDiscs work wherever you play CDs and DVDs, including car players, PCs, DVD players, game consoles and CD players.

CAUTION: Please be aware that there have been reports involving incompatibility between the new DualDisc format and some DVD and CD players. It seems that with some players (still the minority) one or both sides of the DualDisc is not read properly and therefore will not play. Furthermore, please understand that for those DualDiscs that contain DVD Audio programming, you will need a DVD Audio player to read that information, just as you would with normal DVD Audio discs. Also, please note that the technical specifications of this new format do not qualify as an actual "Compact Disc."
