WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the BBC Proms.

Giuseppe Verdi's antipathy towards the church is vividly demonstrated in his operas, yet the Four Sacred Pieces, the original version of the ?Libera me' from his dramatic Requiem and his setting of the ?Ave Maria' for soprano and string orchestra are works of great fervour and beauty. The orchestral version of his 1873 String Quartet opens a programme in which conductor Sir Antonio Pappano, soprano Maria Agresta and the Orchestra and Chorus of the Academy of Santa Cecilia, Rome, bring an authentically Italian bite to the music of the man who, with Wagner, shaped the development of 19th-century opera. Finish time: approx. 21:30
