Gustavo & LA Phil’s Verdi Requiem performance at Hollywood Bowl to be released on DVD & Blu-Ray
This month Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic will release their performance of Verdi’s Requiem on DVD and Blu-ray, the first release from the LA Phil and its Music Director at the Hollywood Bowl. In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth, the DVD was recorded live on August 13 & 15, 2013 and features bass Ildebrando D'Arcangelo, tenor Vittorio Grigolo, mezzo soprano Michelle DeYoung, soprano Julianna Di Giacomo, and the Los Angeles Master Chorale, directed by Grant Gershon. The DVD will also include a short, behind-the-scenes documentary.
“Gustavo Dudamel puts an intimate flourish on Verdi’s Requiem,” said the Los Angeles Times about the performance of Verdi’s Requiem at the Hollywood Bowl. “A page was turned and a new chapter begun in the maturation of a music director.”
The DVD and Blu-ray will be released internationally on November 17 and on C Major Entertainment, distributed in the USA by Naxos of America, on November 19, 2013.
