Story of Verdi in Words and Music CD
DID YOU KNOW…
His name became a rallying cry for Italian nationalists in the last century: “Viva Verdi” was a code for Vittorio Emanuele, Re D’Italia (Long Live Victor Emanuel, King of Italy).
He had a genius for theatrical effect and for portraying powerful emotions through simple means.
Verdi became very rich from his operas, but he left most of his money to a home for musicians that he founded.
After a long and illustrious career, he wrote his two greatest works, both based on Shakespeare, in his old age.
Verdi was the only successful composer who was also a farmer.
Story of Wagner in Words and Music CD
DID YOU KNOW…
Wagner created the ‘music drama’ and with it transformed the nature of opera.
Wagner was a prolific writer about art, music, culture, and political matters. His theories have had a profound influence on German thinking.
Franz Liszt, the great pianist
With help from the ‘mad’ King Ludwig II of Bavaria, Wagner was able to have a theater built just for his music dramas. It was constructed following his own designs, including a sunken orchestra under the stage. Wagner festivals still take place there, in the city of Bayreuth.
