VERDI Requiem

Music Director Fabio Luisi has been eager to conduct Verdi’s Requiem since he began his tenure with the DSO. With its white-hot moments of bravado alternating with some of the most serene moments of Verdi’s music, his Requiem is a monumental work. The orchestra, chorus, and virtuosic soloists tell a story filled with whirlwind emotions moving through profound loss, terror, and anger, and ending with a sense of eternal peace. The work is the musical setting of a Catholic Mass, written in memory of Italian poet, philosopher and novelist, Alessandro Manzoni and first performed in San Marco church in Milan. While not a religious man, Verdi filled this work, in memory of Manzoni, with emotional impact and religious fervor that begins and ends in tranquility.

We are thrilled to welcome Otto Edelmann Competion First Prize winner, sporano Adriana Gonzalez; Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program graduate, mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford; internationally acclaimed tenor Piero Pretti; and Troisième Prix du Concours Operalia/Domingo 2009 winner, bass Wenwei Zhang when they join the Dallas Symphony Chorus and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to perform this monumental piece.
