Verdi Requiem with Sevenoaks Philharmonic Choir
1st July 2023, 19:30
This is probably the biggest work in the entire choral repertoire and is being performed in collaboration with Sevenoaks Philharmonic Choir under the directorship of Robyn Sevastos.
Best known for his Operas, Giuseppe Verdi wrote his Requiem towards the latter part of his working life, building on the development of his operatic writing but continuing to show new development in conveying drama and emotion. First performed in 1874 his Requiem uses many of the techniques he learned in opera and, whilst scored for operatic forces – particularly in the sumptuous parts given to the soloists – the Requiem is by no means an “opera in ecclesiastical dress”.
