In 2001, during the Verdi commemorative year, some of the finest singers of our time assembled in Parma to honour the maestro's memory in a Gran Gala di Verdi. Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Jose Cura, Marcelo Alvarez, Barbara Frittoli and Leo Nucci, to name but a few, joined the Coro del Festival Verdi and the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino under Zubin Mehta to perform some of the most popular opera arias ever.

Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) wrote 28 operas in all, including La Traviata, Aida, Nabucco and Rigoletto. A considerable number of them were world successes and have remained fixtures in every opera house's repertory throughout the last century. This recording demonstrates - better than any single opera could do - the breadth of Verdi's genius and melodic talent as it features highlights of most of his operas.
