“If there’s ever a bit of sunshine, then it’s really new music !”
— Giuseppe Verdi

Verdi’s correspondence offers a doorway into a world of enthusiasm and creativity. One discovers there the unpublished portrait of an artist with a prodigal and casual character, very conscious of his own genius. This tasty selection offers the funniest letters of the master of Italian music, who lived with a passion for wine, friendship and freedom.

The author

A composer of infectious joy and extraordinary determination, Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) was the tireless impresario of his own work, which culminated in such immortal operas as La Traviata, Aïda and Rigoletto. His correspondence with the librettists, musicians and critics of his time opens up the wings of his exciting life, between days of travel and nights of composing, to the conquest of worldwide success.
