Leontyne Price Sings "Libera Me" from the Verdi Requiem

This Friday (Jan. 27) marks the passing of the great Italian opera
composer Giuseppe Verdi 111 years ago. One of his most enduring
compositions is the Manzoni Requiem. Here is the last section, "Libera
Me" with soprano and chorus, here sung by Leontyne Price under the
baton of Herbert von Karajan conducting the Orchestra and Chorus of La
Scala.  Recorded live in 1967 and available on Deutsche Grammophon,
this is a performance for the ages.

Joseph K. So
