When the revered writer Alessandro Manzoni died in 1873, Verdi was unable to bring himself to attend the funeral. Instead he composed his monumental Messa de Requiem in Manzoni's memory and conducted its first performance on the first anniversary of the writer's death. In addition to its profound spirituality, the work also brings together all the finest qualities from Verdi's operas, qualities that include endless melodic lines and powerful musico-dramatic effects.

The present performance was recorded in Los Angeles' legendary Hollywood Bowl in August 2013 and brought together Ildebrando D'Arcangele, all of them at the top of their form.
