Written in memory of Italian author Alessandro Manzoni, Verdi’s Requiem exhibits the composer’s compositional legacy at its finest. Demonstrating a stunning intersection between the sacred and secular, the piece is an explosion of dramatic intensity and operatic splendour associated with Verdi’s compositional aesthetic, whist still underpinned with religious ritual and reverence.

In the past, the Monteverdi ensembles have enjoyed great success in previous performances of this monumental work; in addition to its highly acclaimed performances, the group recorded the Requiem for release in 1995.

Now, to begin the 2018 Season in January, Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir will join the Tonhalle-Orchester for two eagerly anticipated performances of the work. Joining them will be a stellar line-up of soloists which include Luba Orgonáová (Soprano), Marianna Pizzolato (Mezzo-soprano), Michael Spyers (Tenor) and Gianluca Burrato (Bass).
