Dudamel's Verdi Requiem
At the Hollywood Bowl with soloists Julianna Di Giacomo, Michelle DeYoung, Vittorio Grigolo and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo. They wailed. I loved Dudamel's slow tempos that left room for the soloists' to phrase those wonderful Verdi lines. In Verdi the line is everything. It was a bit chaotic but very moving.
