Members of Caramoor’s prestigious Bel Canto Young Artist program (joined by Verdi expert Philip Gossett) present an important and neglected part of Verdi’s legacy.
This piano-accompanied song, or “Romanza” in Verdi’s Italy, was basically an opera aria without orchestra. Since Verdi composed most of the world’s favorite arias, it is no surprise that his songs are a treasury of inspired melody and dramatic variety, but only about half of them are readily available in print. This program presents the entire series, supervised and introduced by Philip Gossett, editor-in-chief of the Ricordi complete edition of Verdi’s works.
