Verdi Requiem

VFO / Noseda - Agresta, Barcellona, Beczala, Abdrazakov, Coro del Teatro Regio di Torino

Gianandrea Noseda’s account of Verdi’s transcendent Requiem from 2013 marks one of the most electrifying moments in Verbier Festival history, and as the first release on Verbier Festival Gold, perfectly exemplifies the legendary calibre of performance that the label seeks to present. Soloists Maria Agresta, Daniela Barcellona, Piotr Beczala, and Ildar Abdrazakov deliver spellbinding performances, as do the singers of the Coro Teatro Regio Torino, and musicians of the Verbier Festival Orchestra. Joining together – from the hushed tones of the ‘Introit’ to the radiant cadence of the ‘Libera me’ – these forces conjure a journey of monumental power under Noseda’s expert direction.
