Viva Verdi collection showcases Rolando’s personal selection


No other composer creates such an immediate link with the audience – Rolando Villazón.

For this Verdi bicentennial year, Rolando Villazón has chosen some of his favorite Verdi tracks – “wonderful arias, great choruses, and popular tunes” – sung by some of the greatest names of the past and present for Viva Verdi!, a new collection to be released by Deutsche Grammophon this April. Pre-order the album here.

Rolando’s Viva Verdi! album continues his celebration and passion for Verdi’s music this season. Last fall, Deutsche Grammophon released Villazón Verdi, a musical journey through Verdi’s works for tenor, recorded with the Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino and Gianandrea Noseda. Beginning April 19, Rolando brings his celebrated performances of Verdi’s music across Europe on a 15-city tour. Learn more about the performances here.
