The Works of Giuseppe Verdi

Preparation for publication of two volumes of the complete works of Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), and editorial work on seven additional volumes. (12 months)

The Works of Giuseppe Verdi makes available to scholars and performers reliable (critical) editions of the complete works of a major historical figure. The scores are both faithful to the primary sources and suitable for performance. Systematic and detailed graphic differentiation makes clear the precise contents of sources, yet the editors furnish viable score readings that encourage performers to make informed musical choices. The scores have become the standard from which the works of Verdi are performed and recorded; the detailed (often revised) histories of the works furnish greater context through which to understand the place of these works in the broader cultural context. The project upholds a new level of probity in today’s core operatic repertory, a group of works that have previously suffered neglect with regard to accurate textual transmission.
