The momentous “Requiem” by Verdi is one of the most beloved and often-performed large-scale works in musical history. The composition of the performers for this particular performance is imposing, with almost two hundred musicians on stage. The piece is exceptionally demanding for the performers, and always provides a powerful and moving experience for the audience. This requiem by Verdi as an opera composer is full of strong feeling, involving the mad rage of Dies irae and the extreme sadness of Lacrimosa, heaven and hell, fire and water, darkness and light, religious grandiosity, and opera-like drama.
