VERDI’S REQUIEM
2019 QUEENSLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL | SPECIAL EVENT

From the thunderbolt explosions of the Dies Irae to the hushed prayers of the Libera Me, Verdi’s use of vigorous rhythms, sublime melodies, and dramatic contrasts showcases the insight, passion, and drama of one of history’s most superlative opera composers in his musical setting of the venerable funeral mass.

The Requiem’s composition came near the end of Verdi’s long career – after he had written all but his final two operas – and is unlike anything else in his output.

This stirring performance features four of Brisbane’s finest community ensembles under the baton of distinguished conductor, Peter Luff.
