- Sings Verdi
Giuseppe Verdi was born in 1813. So in October of 2013 we will celebrate the 200th anniversary of his birth. You can expect a flood of recordings to appear in the marketplace.
To commemorate the Verdi year, what could be more delightful than this anthology of Verdi Arias sung by Angela Gheorghiu who chose to focus her career and repertoire on the operas of this great composer and who made the part of Violetta her very own?
Whether in operas (La Traviata, Il Trovatore, Aida or Rigoletto), Sacred Music (the Requiem) or in Verdi’s rare melodies, Angela Gheorghiu’s voice and fiery temperament truly sets this memorable album ablaze. And her voice is totally suited to celebrate the birth of one great composer.
Here is Angela Gheorghiu – Verdi – La forza del destino – Pace, pace, mio Dio!
And next, we will hear her sing the Verdi “Brindisi”, from a recital at Liceu Barcelona, Spain; Jeff Cohen – piano
Finally, here are Angela Gheorghiu (Soprano) and Roberto Alagna (Tenor) perform La Traviata – Brindisi by Verdi, during the Prom at the Palace event held to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, 2002:
