VERDI - Oxford plain vamp
is dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi (1813 – 1901) - Parma
Despite his humble social status as a young man, he succeeded in fulfilling his vocation as a composer thanks to his goodwill and proven desire to learn. His career as a composer seemed to be definitively over when tragedy struck: his wife and three children died in quick succession, leaving him devastated. But the Scala impresario Merelli urged him not give up on music, and presented him with a libretto to put to music: Nabucco. Verdi, still shaken by the family tragedy, put it aside without even reading it. However one evening, while moving the book, it fell to the ground and by chance laid open at the page of “Va, pensiero”. When Verdi read the text of the famous passage he was deeply moved... He went to bed but was unable to sleep. He got up, reread the text several times and and eventually created, and once “va, pensiero” was set decided to read and set all the booklet. On 9th march 1842 the opera went on stage at Teatro della Scala” and the success was triumphant.
