Product Description

In his magnificent Requiem, first heard in Milan in 1874, Verdi brought all his dramatic genius to a sacred text. The chorus and orchestra of the Paris Opera, under their music director Philippe Jordan, marked the composer's bicentenary in 2013 with two performances of the work. Joining them was an impressive quartet of soloists: Kristin Lewis, Violeta Urmana, Piotr Beczala and Ildar Abdrazakov.

'The result was a performance on an elevated level,' wrote ForumOpera. 'The audience rose to its feet to acknowledge an interpretation that sought less to wake the dead than to pay them tribute. That was precisely Verdi's intention when he originally decided to compose a Requiem to honor [the poet] Alessandro Manzoni ... Kristin Lewis' voice blossoms to the full in the scores of Verdi's maturity ... Violeta Urmana was even throughout her range, with a generous middle register and sure top notes ... Piotr Beczala's sculpted tone accommodated both nuance and restraint and ... Ildar Abdrazakov's singing was ... filled with humanity ... his tone noble, cut from royal cloth.'

Review

This solid ensemble performance shows Jordan well in control of the Paris Opera forces. Chorus and orchestra are not just disciplined but vivid and sometimes eloquent in tone and manner. The conductor's taut, face-paced reading remains focused, not exaggerated, and attentive to detail...Phrasing is anchored to the words; accented notes are scrupulously observed. Flexible dynamics do just to the cacophonous of terrors of the final judgement, and to the soul's ardent but slender hopes for rescue. --David J. Baker, Opera News, June 2014
