Verdi: Requiem

 Richard Fames   Conductor 
 Vlada Borovko   Soprano
 Jennifer Johnston   Mezzo
 David Butt Philip  Tenor
 David Soar  Bass
 BBC National Chorus of Wales   
 BBC National Orchestra of Wales   
 Verdi  Requiem


Orchestra, soloists and chorus join forces to launch the season with Romantic music’s grandest Requiem.
Verdi’s Requiem starts and ends with a whisper, but what a range of drama in between: the violence of the ‘Dies Irae’, the astonishing brass in ‘Tuba Mirum’ and the joyful dance of the ‘Sanctus’…all the power and craft of an Italian Romantic opera in one condensed, emotional narrative.

BBC NOW Pre-Concert Talk
DISCOVER MORE: Verdi’s operatic mastery
Level 1 | 6.30pm - 7pm

We might immediately recall the thunderous drums and drama of the ‘Dies Irae’, but there is so much more to this requiem that has ensured its posterity. We’ll marvel at how Verdi draws on his operatic experience to create his masterpiece.

This event is free for concert ticket holders.
