During the middle phase of his career, Guiseppe Verdi adopted new compositional procedures to create some of his best-known works. Focusing on the operas he composed during this period, this volume explores Verdi's work from three interlinked perspectives: studies of the original source material, cross-disciplinary analysis of musical and textual issues, and the relationship of performance practice to Verdi's musical and dramatic conception. In addition to offering new insights into operas such as "Il Trovatore", "La Traviata" and "Un Ballo in Maschera", this text also highlights works such as "Luisa Miller" and "Les Vepres Siciliennes".
