The Italian Tradition and the European Experience
This chapter discusses the works of Verdi and his artistic achievement. Verdi was an Italian composer whose masterpiece was Il trovatore, and who equated Italian music with vocal music and cantabile melody, and music from across the Alps with instrumental music and declamation to a harmonic underlay. The chapter analyses Verdi's musical style and the concept of dramatic unity, which is a distinctive trait of his theatrical art.
