Riccardo Muti conducts Verdi's Requiem

Riccardo Muti, former Principal Conductor of the Philharmonia, returns to London to conduct Verdi’s roof-raising Requiem.

Verdi poured all his skill in depicting the extremes of human emotion into his Requiem. There is violence in the ‘Dies Irae’, power and grandeur in the ‘Tuba Mirum’, heralded by eight trumpets. Joyful praise resounds in the ‘Sanctus’, a brilliant double fugue, and the ‘Agnus Dei’ opens with a spine-tingling unaccompanied duet for the soprano and alto soloists.

Only a handful of people have had the privilege of being Principal Conductor of the Philharmonia. Succeeding Otto Klemperer, Muti was at the helm from 1972 to 1982. One of the world’s leading interpreters of Verdi, his much-anticipated return is one of the highlights of the Orchestra’s 75th anniversary year.
