Giuseppe Verdi

Giuseppe Verdi

Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi (October 1813 - 27 January 1901) was an Italian Romantic composer, mainly of opera. He was one of the most influential composers of the 19th century. His works are frequently performed in opera houses throughout the world and, transcending the boundaries of the genre, some of his themes have long since taken root in popular culture - such as "La donna e mobile" from Rigoletto, "Va, pensiero" (The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves) from Nabucco, "Libiamo ne' lieti calici" (The Drinking Song) from La traviata and the "Grand March" from Aida. His work has sometimes been criticized for using a generally diatonic rather than a chromatic musical idiom and for being essentially melodrama during his early years.

Verdi's masterworks dominate the standard repertoire a century and a half after their composition.

Giuseppe Verdi : Pater Noster : SATB : Songbook : Giuseppe Verdi : 9780193384323 : 9780193384323

Giuseppe Verdi : Pater Noster

Review: Verdi's select output of choral music is little known, but contains much of the dramatic boldness and harmonic invention of his operatic choruses. The Pater Noster is an unusual and interesting work of moderate difficulty, ranging in mood from meditative, devotional stillness to dramatic contrasts of a more extrovert nature. This scholarly edition has been carefully prepared by Judith Blezzard, and includes a keyboard reduction for rehearsal purposes and an English singing translation by Professor Brian Trowell.

Robert Shaw Chorus : Verdi: Requiem : 00  2 CDs : Robert Shaw : Giuseppe Verdi : 80152

Robert Shaw Chorus : Verdi: Requiem

Review: Having given his lifetime experience and mastery to the great repertory of the choral literature, Robert Shaw addresses one of the greatest challenges of all-Verdi's greatest choral masterwork, the Requiem. Combining a succession of thrilling solo arias, duets and ensembles with some of the most inspiring writing for chorus, the great Italian master produced a unique tribute to the memory of one whom he regarded as a virtual saint: poet and novelist Alexander Manzoni. Balancing the devotional with the theatrical requires the utmost care, but care must also be taken to involve the listener in a continually unfolding drama. Robert Shaw, his expert singers, chorus, and orchestra, have achieved this. But there is more to offer on this superb album. Shaw has set down his interpretation of some of the best-known choruses from five of Verdi's major works - Macbeth, Don Carlo, Otello, Aida and especially, the well-loved Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Nabucco.

Songlist: Disc One:, Requiem & Kyrie, Dies irae, 1. Dies irae, 2. Tuba mirum, 3. Mors stupebit, 4. Liber scriptus, 5. Quid sum miser, 6. Rex tremendae, 7. Recordare, 8. Ingemisco, 9. Confutatis, 10. Lacrimosa, Offertory, Sanctus, Disc Two:, Agnus Dei , Lux aeterna, Libera me, 1. Libera me, 2. Dies irae, 3. Requiem aeternam, 4. Libera me, Operatic Choruses:, "Spuntato ecco" from Don Carlos, "Patria oppressa!" from Macbeth, "Fuoco di gioia" from Otello, "Va pensiero" from Nabucco, "Gloria all'Egitto" from Aida

University of New Mexico Concert Choir : Verdi Requiem : 00  2 CDs : Bradley Ellingboe : Giuseppe Verdi

University of New Mexico Concert Choir : Verdi Requiem

Review: The UNM performers were joined by an Italian guest conductor, Stefano Vignati, and soloists Ilaria De Francesco, soprano; Laura Brioli, mezzo soprano; Gian Luca Pasolini, tenor; and Mirco Palazzi, bass. "We record all our performances for archival purposes, but because of the special guest artists and the combination of the chorus and concert choir, we used eight microphones to capture the event. The sound quality is exceptional, especially for a live performance," Ellingboe said.

Songlist: Requiem et Kyrie, Dies Irae: , -Dies irae, -Tuba mirum, -Liber scriptus, -Quid sum, miser!, -Rex tremendae, -Recordare, -Ingemisco, -Confutatis, -Lacrymosa, CD 2:, Domine Jesu, Sanctus, Agnus Dei, Lux aeterna , Libera me
