Powerful, tempestuous Verdi Requiem

Powerful and tempestuous, Willoughby Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Nicholas Milton, gave a very moving performance of the riveting Verdi Requiem. Milton’s energetic, passionate yet precisely controlled conducting brought forth some magnificent ensemble playing from the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra; fiery and tumultuous where required and in other passages lyrical and pleading … a glorious sea of flowing sound, which in some sections crashed and volcanically erupted, in others soulfully lamented. … All four soloists were glorious in their phrasing, quality of voice and feeling for the words. … This was a passionate, stirring performance.
