London Symphony Orchestra
Penned by a grief-stricken Verdi to memorialize poet Alessandro Manzoni, the Requiem transforms fear, piety, supplication, and hope into an earth-shattering operatic work. Presiding over this astounding masterwork is Gianandrea Noseda, a conductor soaring to great heights on the wings of his luminous interpretations of large-scale symphonic works, and known for “forcing audiences to question their musical beliefs” (Guardian, U.K.).
“Electric from start to finish.”
