Drums thunder, trumpets blast, and a massed chorus cries out in terror. When Giuseppe Verdi wrote his Requiem, he refused to let his imagination be constrained by the conventions of sacred music. Instead, he brought all his dramatic power to bear on a story of tragedy, redemption, and the end of time. The result is one of the mightiest of all choral masterpieces. Edward Gardner understands Verdi’s sense of drama from the inside, and he’s assembled a team of soloists worthy of a major operatic production – plus the full London Philharmonic Choir – for an evening of great singing and uninhibited emotion.
