Sat., Dec. 2 at 1pm on WKAR Radio 90.5 FM | The performances of Verdi’s Requiem are dedicated to the memory of Dmitri Hvorostovsky.
For the first time since 2008, James Levine conducts a special series of concerts of Verdi’s great Mass, written in memory of Italian poet Alessandro Manzoni.
The company has assembled a quartet of extraordinary soloists to join the incomparable Met Orchestra and Chorus: Krassimira Stoyanova, Ekaterina Semenchuk, Aleksandrs Antonenko, and Ferruccio Furlanetto.
The Messa da Requiem (Italian for “Requiem Mass”) stands as a unique testimony to the artistic and human vision of Giuseppe Verdi, encapsulating all of his dramatic and psychological genius unfettered by the usual constraints of dramaturgy and theatrical practicalities.
