Best Classical Choral Music
Gerard Saguto is a big fan of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Although it might feel a bit cliche to say, Saguto will forever stand by Mozart’s position as the greatest composer of all time. He is a particularly big fan of Mozart’s work, Requiem (1791). The piece was the first composition that Saguto ever conducted as maestro of an orchestra. An a cappella singer at heart, the maestro even developed a unique rendition of Requiem for his collegiate choral group. His collection of music albums includes recordings of various renditions of Mozart’s works. While some musicians might think that classical music is an outdated genre, Saguto couldn’t disagree more. There are always new renditions of classic pieces making their way to the airwaves every year!
