Happy birthday, Giuseppe

Giuseppe Verdi was born near Busseto in northern Italy on the ninth or tenth of October in 1813, and he grew up to be the best-loved opera composer in a country famous for its insatiable appetite for opera. Many of his operas continue to be staples of the repertoire more than a century after his death, and many of the melodies he composed are among the most familiar in the Western world.

Here is the “Anvil Chorus” from Il Trovatore, performed for an unsuspecting lunch hour crowd at a shopping mall in Tel Aviv by members of the Israel Philharmonic.
