Item description for Verdi (Life & Times) (Life&Times) by Barbara Meier, Rosemary Smith & Roger Parker...
Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), the popular genius behind Rigoletto, Aida and La Traviata, continues to enthrall audiences with his daring music and stories of love and death. Of his Requiem, his wife Giuseppina wrote: "Posterity will place it, with wings outspread, in domination of all the music of mourning ever conceived by the human brain." His life was as dramatic and passionate as his music. As this biography shows, he was always fighting: for Italy's freedom and nationhood and for his own artistic freedom against the censors, opera impresarios and the authorities.
