Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901):

I lombardi alla prima crociata - dramma lirico in four acts, to a libretto by Temistocle Solera

Ivan Repušić made his debut as principal conductor of the Munich Radio Orchestra in September 2017 with Giuseppe Verdi's Luisa Miller. It was followed by I due Foscari in October 2018 and Attila in October 2019. (The complete recordings have already been released by BR Klassik on CD 900323, 900328 and 900330.) His successful cycle of early masterpieces by the Italian opera composer continues with the recent concert performance on 23 April 2023 of Verdi's stage work I Lombardi - also at the Prinzregententheater in Munich. Authentic fluidity and vocal splendour are provided here once again by outstanding performers and the Bavarian Radio Chorus. This highlight of Munich's musical life from the early part of this year has now been released by BR Klassik as a double CD.
