The Works of Giuseppe Verdi

Preparation for publication of three volumes of the complete works of Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), with editorial work on nine additional volumes. (36 months)

The critical edition of the complete works of Giuseppe Verdi is a joint publication of the University of Chicago Press and Casa Ricordi in Milan, which aims to make available to scholars, students, and performers, reliable editions of Verdi's music that are both faithful to the sources and suitable for performance. The works included in the project are at the core of the nineteenth-century operatic repertory, from Rigoletto, Trovatore, and La traviata, to Un ballo in maschera, Otello and Falstaff. Also included are Verdi's Messa da Requiem and other sacred choral works, as well as lesser known vocal and instrumental works, such as the songs and the string quartet, some of which are not available in other editions. Having completed a successful transition in editorial leadership, the project has laid plans for broader dissemination through digital publication, a new series of study-scores in reduced format, and the creation of a new website hosted by the University of Chicago Press.
