http://schillerinstitute.org - At the time of Verdi, the pitch was 432 Hz, and he wrote his operas for that pitch. Giuseppe Verdi was a very intelligent person, he knew the voices very well, and he wrote for the voices. Going back to the Verdi tuning, and thereby breaking the perverse trend of the last decades of tuning ever higher, is a matter of respect for the artistic will of the composer, for his idea of color, of sound, of color of the voice, and also respect for the vocal instrument.

This third "preview" of an upcoming DVD ("The Classical Revolution") features a number of leading proponents of going back to the Verdi pitch of A=432 Hz: soprano Renata Tebaldi, baritone Piero Cappuccilli, Lyndon LaRouche and Liliana Gorini (initiators of the Schiller Institute's campaign for the Verdi Tuning), soprano Antonella Banaudi and Maestro Daniel Lipton.

Some of the other leading singers who supported the campaign for the Verdi Tuning are: Placido Domingo (tenor), Luciano Pavarotti (tenor), Montserrat Caballé (soprano), Joan Sutherland (soprano), Carlo Bergonzi (tenor), Giuseppe di Stefano (tenor), Birgit Nilsson (soprano), Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (baritone), Kurt Moll (bass), Nikolai Ghiaurov (bass), Shirley Verrett (soprano), Fiorenza Cossotto (mezzo-soprano), Alfredo Kraus (tenor), Grace Bumbry (soprano), Edda Moser (soprano), Marilyn Horne (mezzo-soprano), Christa Ludwig (mezzosoprano), Peter Schreier (tenor), Sherrill Milnes (baritone), Renato Bruson (baritone), Ruggero Raimondi (bass), and many others.
