Riccardo Muti leads Verdi’s deeply moving Requiem Mass, a touchstone work for Muti, the Orchestra and Chorus, who won two Grammy® Awards for their 2010 CSO Resound recording. “The passion and dramatic verve that Muti masterfully elicited in this performance are simply magnificent,” NPR raved. “The Chorus and Orchestra summoned both massive power and a heavenly for the ages.”
