  1. Messa da Requiem - Giuseppe Verdi

Dies irae, dies illa… Trumpets blast, drums thunder and a mighty chorus cries out in terror.

A Requiem is a service for the dead, but there was never any chance that an old fighter like Giuseppe Verdi would go quietly into the night. Sure enough, his huge Requiem mass has been called the grandest opera he never wrote: thrillingly dramatic, blazing with emotion and conceived on an absolutely gigantic scale.

Vasily Petrenko has assembled a stellar team of soloists plus the full Philharmonia Chorus: all ready to storm the very heavens. It’s a piece that could have been written to be heard in the majestic surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall, and believe us, tonight you’ll feel the air shake.
