The passion and dramatic verve that Muti masterfully elicited in this performance are simply magnificent...The Chorus and Orchestra summoned both massive power and a heavenly stillness...one for the ages.

Why See Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Muti Conducts the Verdi Requiem?

Verdi's Blockbuster Requiem

With all the emotion of an opera and the ambition of a master, Verdi's Requiem is truly one of the most unmissable and staggering live performances an orchestra can stage, a sentiment especially true of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, who, under the baton of Muti, have two Grammy Awards for their past efforts.

Considered one of the canon's juggernauts, the work first premiered in 1874 and was dedicated to Verdi's friend, the poet Alessandro Manzoni. Though not immediately popular with audiences who couldn't reconcile the operatic style with the religious subject matter, it has since gone on to become a staple of the chorale canon.

Once again, join the company, the chorus, and guest vocalists for a full-scale performance of the Romantic Era landmark, including the utterly soul-stirring Dies Irae movement, amongst the power and bombast of the Latin Mass.
