Muti's debut now hes been appointed is Verdi's Requiem.
I understand that this is a very famous and respected work, but ive listened to a little of it, is it all so dull and deathly ??? does it ever cheer up or does the whole peice stay somber and dour ? just seeing if I should keep my ticket.
Im not passing judgement on the undoubted merits of a well known peice of work, just trying to see if its right for me. Im beginning to think that any classical vocal work is a much further step over the classical divide than the orchestral music im really getting into.
