Daniel Barenboim conducts Verdi’s Requiem

Hans von Bülow, the first chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, was deeply moved: “Even in a rather mediocre performance,” he wrote to Giuseppe Verdi, his Requiem had “moved me to tears”. The work does, in fact, have an emotional immediacy that is unusual for liturgical music – for example, in the Dies Irae, which depicts a shattering apocalypse. This performance will be led by Daniel Barenboim, honorary conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
