Music News & Info: Classical

Verdi and video games

Thanks to the iPod touch game, “N.O.V.A. 2” by Gameloft, CKDH Jr. has a new favorite piece of classical music:

The “Dies Irae” from Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem.

We have a recording of the Requiem by Fritz Reiner conducting the Vienna Philharmonic, and the “Dies Irae” is now on constant repeat.  Nothing like hearing it cranked up to 40 in the car . . . as long as CKDH Jr. lets me know it’s coming, because it can be a little less than safe to be driving on public roads when the very punchy opening hits without me knowing.

Here is the “N.O.V.A. 2” video trailer with Verdi as it’s soundtrack . . .
