VERDI Messa da Requiem

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a glorious achievement”, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and music director Riccardo Muti perform Verdi’s Requiem Mass, featuring the Chicago Symphony Chorus and four outstanding soloists.  Winner of two Grammy ® Awards including Best Classical Album and Best Choral Performance, this stunning performance brilliantly captures both the pathos and passion of Verdi’s masterpiece. “[Muti’s] profound sense of the score and his mastery of the CSO forces are fully evident. The orchestral playing is incomparable…” -Sound and Vision

Praise for these concerts

“I’m sure many in the packed hall will long remember it as a life-changing experience…The thwacks of the bass drum ricocheted mightily…, with the fiery blasts of the brass from the balcony really sounding as if Heaven were beckoning.” —Chicago Tribune
