“Riccardo Muti, the King of Verdi” – The New York Times
A captivating documentary. A journey into the depth of Verdi’s music, through Riccardo Muti’s words, rehearsals, works and concerts. The greatest living interpreter of Verdi’s music, applauded by the critics and the audience all over the world. Together we will discover the meaning of some of Riccardo Muti’s most famous statements:
“We have to give Verdi the dignity and respect that he desired and deserves…” “We must have the courage to follow his experiments on musical timbre” “I have spent most of my life trying to understand what Verdi wanted to tell us with his music”. “The music of Verdi moves you, helps you and comforts you, because it speaks to men about men, not about superheroes”. The Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio, in writing “He gave a voice to all our hopes and sorrows. He wept and loved for all of us”, wanted to say that Verdi was able to express universal feelings of grief and joy. Thus, Asians, Americans, Europeans and Africans all perceive the same message in his music, a message coming from the depth of the heart and able to move anyone’s soul. In this sense, Verdi’s music will never become old-fashioned, because it expresses universal feelings, the feelings of all humanity, in a unique way.
Interviews, rehearsals, concerts of Riccardo Muti with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.
The dvd includes part of the performance of Verdi’s Messa da Requiem with the CSO that won the Grammy Award in 2011.
