A Great Score Finally Available Oct 27, 2007
For nearly a century Verdi's extraordinary "Stiffelio" had been dismissed by both historians and opera companies. Recent revivals have shown it to be an important transitional composition in Verdi's body of dramas as well as a powerful stage work in its own right. This Ricordi edition is marvelously annotated, providing not only an opportunity to become more acquainted with a fascinating opera, but providing valuable musicological insight as well. This is a vital and important publication, essential to Verdi enthusiasts and scholars alike.
