For her 23rd exercise in honoring composer anniversaries with concerts by NEC faculty, alumni, and guests, Tatyana Dudochkin of the NEC Preparatory School piano faculty offers a salute to Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) on his bicentennial.
WGBH radio announcer Ron Della Chiesa hosts the event.
From the elephants and tombs of Aïda, to Shakespeare's outscale heroes, to the epic romances of Gilda and Violetta, Verdi's dramas define the parameters of Grand Opera.
There will be many celebrations of his various facets during this bicentennial year; tonight's survey maps his musical and emotional range, with works both familiar and little-known.
