The diva and the pea
THE DIVA AND THE PEA AND THE YEAR OF VERDI.
The next few weeks we will focus on all of his works. In this case we will primarily focus on lesser-known live-recordings from lesser-known vocalists.
In this third programme on Claudio Abbado conducts Verdi, the focus is on ”Un Ballo in Maschera”.
In the 5 different recordings that are heard, conducted by the maestro himself, we try to find out wy this opera became so frustrating to him.
