Giuseppe Verdi's "Messa da Requiem"

Teodor Currentzis and MusicAeterna at the premiere venue
{{ message.content }}

When Gioachino Rossini died in 1868, Giuseppe Verdi called on a group of his composer colleagues to help him compose the collaborative work Messe per Rossini. The work never came to fruition, but Verdi had already composed his section: the Libera me from the finale. From this germ grew his Messa da Requiem- one of the most popular choral works of all time, often ironically referred to as Verdi's "best opera". There is no denying the operatic style of the work - but this is no bad thing, as the work was written with the concert hall in mind. With opera reformer Teodor Currentzis conducting at the location of the premiere, the Chiesa di San Marco in Milan, we can expect completely new aspects of this monumental work to be revealed.
