Beschreibung von Audible
Whence does genius come? In Italian opera, it comes from Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). In Giuseppe Verdi, it comes from a humble upbringing, idiosyncratic but deeply held religious conviction, and a prodigious grasp of musicality, especially melody. Guided by Richard Mayes’ proper and endearing British voice, this audiobook is a good introduction to one of the most important composers of all time. The listener will hear clips of Verdi’s work and will gain much biographical detail on the man. While Verdi most certainly did not speak with an English accent, the listener will be pleased to hear readings from Verdi’s own diary and letters.
