Triumphal March

Something for the weekend.  Triumphal March from Aida by Giuseppe Verdi.

One of the great composers of the Nineteenth Century, Verdi was an endlessly innovative musical genius.  He was also a Catholic, often writing sacred music, which I will feature in future posts.  His last composition was a setting for the beautiful Marian hymn Stabat Mater.  His music has always struck me as reflecting the overall optimistic feeling of the Nineteenth Century, something our time period could us more of.
