Verdi’s Requiem

We went this evening to Verdi’s Requiem at the Bozar concert hall in Brussels. There were several sections with a back beat you couldn’t lose it. There was one where four additional trumpets, up on a balcony, were ushered into sound by the conductor. And throughout the piece the alto struggled with the orchestra and the choir, swinging her head sharply from one side to the other, and came out on top like a dog with a stolen shoe. It was a great slab of music.
