Coinciding with the 200th anniversary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birth, CSO Resound released its second recording with Maestro Riccardo Muti featuring Verdi’s second-to-last opera, Otello. The recording joins remarkable fidelity to the instrumental and choral score with a spellbinding collection of vocal soloists. Recorded live in concert at Symphony Center in 2011, this album will stand for years to come as a unique benchmark in Verdi performance and interpretation by one of today’s finest conductors. Maestro Muti and the CSO’s first recording together was a lauded album of Verdi’s Messa da Requiem, which won two Grammy Awards.
