The Works of Giuseppe Verdi

Preparation of an edition of the complete works of Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). (24 months)

The University of Chicago Press, in cooperation with Casa Ricordi of Milan, has embarked on the first critical edition of the complete works of Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). This critical edition, which has already proven invaluable to musical scholarship as well as to the performance of Verdi's music, is projected to take over forty years to complete. The sequence of work has been organized so as to issue the more famous operas in alternation with lesser-known works, to maintain balanced sales as well as heterogeneity. Furthermore, to facilitate editing and production, the largest and most complex works, particularly the double volumes containing several versions, are scheduled between smaller, less demanding volumes. The edition is being prepared under the general editorship of Philip Gossett and an editorial board that includes seven other Verdi scholars.
