Giuseppe Verdi: Messa da Requiem

MusicAeterna and Teodor Currentzis in Milan
{{ message.content }}

In 2019, at the location of the premiere, the Chiesa di San Marco in Milan, Teodor Currentzis conducted Giuseppe Verdi's monumental Messa da Requiem. There is a very special atmosphere in the cool interior of the church, where gargantuan columns rise up and vanish in the dark heights. Currentzis doesn't let the brute force of the Requiem get the better of him, remaining a master of emotional dramaturgy throughout. The four soloists Zarina Abaeva (soprano), Ève-Maud Hubeaux (mezzo soprano), Dimitrio Popov (tenor) and Tareq Nazmi (bass) and the MusiAeterna ensemble make for an overwhelmingly good musical collective. The takt1 premiere to mark the first day of Advent.
