A concert for the spirit, with star performers: Verdi’s Requiem at the Hollywood Bowl in 2013 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra (LA Phil) conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. The soloists are Juliana Di Giacomo (soprano), Michelle DeYoung (mezzo-soprano), Vittorio Grigolo (tenor) and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo (bass), with singing by the Los Angeles Master Chorale.

Giuseppe Verdi’s (1813 - 1901) Messa da Requiem can be considered the most musically rich requiem mass that the classical-romantic era produced. With this requiem, Verdi pays tribute to two important Italian artists: He began composing the piece in 1868 after the death of composer Gioachino Rossini (1792 - 1868) and completed it in 1874 after the death of poet Alessandro Manzoni (1785 - 1873). Regardless, the Messa da Requiem is a church music piece that is generally significant in a spiritual sense. It still staggers audiences to this day – not least because of its interplay between magnificent sound and the strongly sensuous expressiveness of the text.

Experience a breathtaking concert from 2013 at the famous Hollywood Bowl!
