Mariss Jansons conducts Verdi’s Requiem
Probably nowhere else do the worlds of the opera house and the concert hall overlap more seamlessly than in Verdi’s Requiem – the melos, fury and sentiment of Italian music theatre are refined with all the means of symphonic choral and orchestral sound. Even Brahms – not exactly a fan of Verdi – opined: “Only a genius could write such a work”. The conductor of this “outstanding performance” (Der Tagesspiegel) from 2010 is Mariss Jansons.
