Edinburgh Festival Chorus

(Aidan Oliver chorus director)

Thomas Dausgaard conductor

Trumpets blast, drums thunder and a great chorus cries out in terror. There was never any chance that an old fighter like Giuseppe Verdi would go quietly into the night, and sure enough, his epic Requiem Mass might just be the greatest opera he never wrote: thrillingly dramatic, blazing with emotion and conceived on the grandest possible scale. Thomas Dausgaard has assembled a stellar team of soloists plus the full Edinburgh Festival Chorus, all ready to shake the very heavens. But before the storm, the calm: Luciano Berio felt grief very differently, and his Requies tells its tale “as a shadow might describe an object, or an echo a sound”. But the emotion is every bit as real.
