Time and again the operas of the 19th and early 20th centuries show love coming to grief on the shoals of politics, family feuds, intrigues or personal failings. The Italian composers Bellini, Verdi and Puccini and the Frenchman Camille Saint-Saëns knew precisely how to cloak such stories in gripping music. The Munich Radio Orchestra will present four works by these famous composers, all worthy of receiving accurate hearings in concert. With star-studded casts, of course!
Dramma lirico in four acts (concertante performance) by Giuseppe Verdi
Sunday, 25 April 2021, 7:00 pm
Verdi struck his contemporaries right in the heart with patriotic operas like Nabucco. Oppressed by foreign rulers, particularly the Habsburgs, Italians longed for the unification and independence of their native land. They also found reason to identify with the opera I Lombardi alla prima crociata (The Lombards on the First Crusade). Today’s listeners still thrill at the way that Verdi moulds a murderer’s penitence and the fate of a congregation into a unified whole with gripping solos and choruses.
