Daniel Barenboim conducts Verdi’s Requiem

Hans von Bülow, the first chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, was deeply moved: “Even in a rather mediocre performance,” he wrote to Giuseppe Verdi in 1893, his Requiem had “moved me to tears”. Bülow also voiced the opinion, still widely held today, that the work is “opera in ecclesiastical garb”. And, in fact, it has an emotional immediacy that is quite unusual for liturgical music – for example, in the Dies Irae, which depicts a shattering apocalypse. This performance will be led by Daniel Barenboim, honorary conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
