Notes & Reviews:

Giuseppe Verdi was the greatest of the late-nineteenth-century Italian opera composers, carrying the legacy of Rossini forward with more realistic storylines, seemingly playing out the political headlines in his opera settings. This 2-CD set includes excerpts from the most frequently performed and recorded works of Verdi, including selections from over a dozen operas and his Requiem Mass.
