Celebrating Giuseppe Verdi’s 200th Birthday

In the year of the celebrations for the 200 years passed from Giuseppe Verdi’s birth, the Cameristi della Scala will offer an exclusive program, absolutely unique in the international music’s world. It contains “Fantasie” from Verdi’s operas, composed in the 19th century by Italian important composer, sometimes Verdi’s friends and coworkers. These pieces, gifts and celebrations to the greatness of the composer from Busseto, were lying forgotten and without an editor in world libraries. We found them and we transcribed and rivisited them. They are now played for the fi rst time in our modern times.

These “Fantasie” from Verdi’s operas, represented a very important way to spread Verdi’s music, in a time where there was no possibility of reproducing music except from a live concert. These are rielaborated versions, that we could easily call covers, which is a sign of how incredibly popular the original themes to which they refer were. It will be possible to hear and experience the most famous melodies from Verdi with the virtuosity of the orchestra and its soloists.
