Few choral works have captured the public imagination in the way that Verdi’s Requiem has.
The uncomplicated directness of his style, his soaring, lyrical melodies that lie perfectly for the human voice, the scintillating orchestration and, most significantly, the work’s extraordinary dramatic and emotional intensity, all contribute to the Requiem’s status as one of the great icons of Western music.
The Soloists for this performance are Lee Abrahmsen, Kerrie Bolton, Michael Lapina and Manfred Pohlenz.
