“Few pieces in the repertoire offer the drama of opera and the thrill of wonderful symphonic writing combined with stellar, virtuosic solo moments. But Verdi’s Requiem does all that and more.” – Marin Alsop, Music Director, Baltimore Symphony

Verdi’s Requiem fuses his operatic flair with ancient liturgical texts for the Mass of Dead that have been set by countless composers over the centuries. Verdi’s setting stands out as one of the finest, enthralling audiences with its intensely dramatic interpretation. His iconic Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) in particular blazes with fury and terror, replete with thunderbolts from the bass drums. It, along with the opening chorus of Carmina Burana, is among the most recognizable music in the classical genre. Often compared to Brahms’s A German Requiem written five years earlier, Verdi’s masterpiece is a deeply spiritual work, written, according to Verdi’s wife, by a “very doubt- ful believer.”

Verdi Requiem features Grammy-nominated True Concord and UA’s Arizona Choir, Arianna Zukerman, soprano; Teresa Buchholz, mezzo-soprano; Hugo Vera, tenor; Andrew Stuckey, baritone.
