A gripping performance of 'Forza' Overture to salute Verdi's 200th birthday
The world has been awash in more Verdian sounds than usual this year, thanks to the preeminent Italian opera composer's bicentennial. Since Oct. 10 marks Verdi's actual 200th birthday (OK, it might have been the day before, but most sources go with the 10th), I figured I had to take extra note of the occasion.
