CLASSICAL OPUS no.45

Giuseppe Verdi: “Dies Irae”

ジュゼッペ・ヴェルディ:「ディラ・イレーエ」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 2 minutes

This wrathful, fiery and demoniac chant explodes with paroxysms of thunderous detonations.  Verdi subverted operatic conventions with his groundbreaking use of choruses and unprecedented vigor.  The toolkit was used, to great effect, in this memorial mass.

A REFLECTION

This solitary hill has always been dear to me

And this hedge, which prevents me from seeing most of the endless horizon

But when I sit and gaze, I imagine, in my thoughts

Endless spaces beyond the hedge
