Cincinnati Pops Orchestra Erich Kunzel – conductor. Giuseppe Verdi inherited from Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti the tradition of glorious vocal melody, and added to it a sense of drama that has never been excelled. Though he evolved a style of enormous subtlety and expressive range across his 28 operas, the element that binds his entire creative output together is his almost peerless ability to write soaring, memorable melodies

Enjoy the music of operas, but not so keen on all those words? Then this is the Verdi album for you. Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra are on top form in this selection of glorious melodies that include favourites such as the 'Grand March' and 'Celeste Aida' from 'Aida'; 'La Donna e Mobile' from 'Rigoletto'; 'Va, Pensiero' from 'Nabucco'; and the 'Anvil Chorus' from 'Il Trovatore".

The following is a list of published compositions by the composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901). Revision of earlier opera, including translations with material musical changes. Librettists not directly involved in the preparation of a specific revision, but whose text (or a translation thereof) is included in the work, are shown in italics. Re Lear (King Lear), 1856. Librettist Antonio Somma worked with Verdi on completing a libretto for an opera based on Shakespeare's King Lear.
