Verdi Requiem

Description

FABIO LUISI conducts ADRIANA GONZÁLEZ soprano TAMARA MUMFORD mezzo-soprano PIERO PRETTI tenor WENWEI ZHANG bass DALLAS SYMPHONY CHORUS VERDI Requiem Music Director Fabio Luisi has been eager to conduct Verdi's Requiem since he began his tenure with the DSO. With its white-hot moments of bravado alternating with some of the most serene moments of Verdi's music, his Requiem is a monumental work. The orchestra, chorus, and virtuosic soloists tell a story filled with whirlwind emotions moving through profound loss, terror, and anger, and ending with a sense of eternal peace. The work is the musical setting of a Catholic Mass, written in memory of Italian poet, philosopher and novelist, Alessandro Manzoni and first performed in San Marco church in Milan. While not a religious man, Verdi filled this work, in memory of Manzoni, with emotional impact and religious fervor that begins and ends in tranquility.
