VERDI: MESSA DA REQUIEM

This high quality digital recording of the RMP’s thrilling live performance in the Melbourne Town Hall on 2 October, 2010 features a stellar quartet of soloists (Rosamund Illing, Fiona Janes, Patrick Power, Joshua Bloom), along with the combined 250 voice Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir and  Melbourne University Choral Society choirs, and the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Wailes.

“From the hushed opening phrases and passionate fortissimo outbursts of the impeccably prepared chorus, to the scintillating playing of the RMP orchestra, and the gloriously controlled singing of four superb soloists, this performance of Verdi’s great Requiem did not disappoint. Conductor Andrew Wailes infused Verdi’s already dramatic score with an unwaivering energy and sense of gravitas, marshalling his large forces to produce a memorable and thrilling performance which at times rocked the very foundations of the packed Town Hall.”

Enjoy the electric tension of a thrilling live performance of one of the most dramatic and powerful of all choral masterpieces. Includes 16 page CD booklet, including artist biographies, photographs and complete list of performers.
