Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra
Et lux perpetua…


Verdi’s amazing Requiem was originally composed to commemorate Italy’s national poet Alessandro Manzoni, and when it was first performed at Milan’s San Marco Church in 1874, it became rather a mainstay of concert halls than cathedrals. With the frightening images of God’s wrath in “Dies irae”, the monumentality of “Sanctus” and the lyricism of “Agnus Dei”, the opus belongs to “the most operatic” requiem masses in music history. Its performance by the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, four excellent soloists and the Prague Philharmonic Choir under principal conductor Ondrej Lenárd promises to be a monumental conclusion to the 91st season.
