A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Verdi s Attila , his ninth opera, had its premiere at Venice s Teatro La Fenice in March 1846. Based on the German play Attila, King of the Huns, the libretto has its own storied history: as Verdi fell seriously ill before the work s completion, the main librettist moved permanently to Madrid, leaving the last act of Attila only a sketch. It was then that Verdi called upon Francesco Maria Piave, the librettist for two of his earlier works, who at the composer s behest scratched plans for a large choral finale and decided instead to concentrate on the dramatic roles of the protagonists. In the years since Attila has become one of Verdi s most popular and oftstaged early works. The composer s inimitable vitality, soaring arcs of melody, grand choruses, and passion are here amply apparent. This critical edition, based on Verdi s autograph full score preserved at the British Library, restores the opera s original text and accurately reflects the composer s colorful and elaborate musical setting, while Helen Greenwald s masterly introduction discusses the opera s origins, sources, and performance questions, and her critical commentary details editorial problems and their solutions.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Verdi's "Attila", his ninth opera, had its premiere at Venice's Teatro La Fenice in March 1846. Based on the German play Attila, King of the Huns, the libretto has its own storied history: as Verdi fell seriously ill before the work's completion, the main librettist moved permanently to Madrid, leaving the last act of Attila only a sketch. It was then that Verdi called upon Francesco Maria Piave, the librettist for two of his earlier works, who at the composer's behest scratched plans for a large choral finale and decided instead to concentrate on the dramatic roles of the protagonists. In the years since Attila has become one of Verdi's most popular and oftstaged early works. The composer's inimitable vitality, soaring arcs of melody, grand choruses, and passion are here amply apparent. This critical edition, based on Verdi's autograph full score preserved at the British Library, restores the opera's original text and accurately reflects the composer's colorful and elaborate musical setting, while Helen Greenwald's masterly introduction discusses the opera's origins, sources, and performance questions, and her critical commentary details editorial problems and their solutions.
