At the end of the Liepāja International Star Festival this time we will hear the “Requiem” by the brilliant Italian opera genius Giuseppe Verdi – a monumental piece of spiritual vocal and instrumental music, in which the composer has put all his talent as a genius melodist and master of musical form dramaturgy.
Giuseppe Verdi's Requiem is often referred to as another opera by Verdi, because the abundance of contrasts, the dramaturgical tension and the diverse interplay of solo voices, ensembles and the choir is so emotionally strong.
Verdi's Requiem is a dedication to the memory of the Italian poet and prose writer Alessandro Manconi (1785-1873), and is not so much of a mirror of eternal light, but more of a dramatic opus that provokes secular reflections, letting the listener go through unforgettable moments of emotional experience.
