Davies Symphony Hall is an appropriately majestic backdrop for the San Francisco Choral Society's performance of Brahms' monumental A German Requiem. Working from a German-language Bible -- rather than the Latin Catholic liturgy -- Brahms focused his elegiac composition on the transience of life, rather than the finality of death. In doing so, he transformed a potentially conventional piece of church music into what would later become the second most performed choral work after Handel's Messiah. Now soloists Marnie Breckenridge (soprano) and Eugene Brancoveanu (bass) and the California Chamber Symphony will join SF Choral in bringing this masterful Requiem back to life. Learn More

Beautiful performance, and interesting choice of pieces. The Schulhoff trio for flute/piccolo,viola and bass was unusual and pleasanty quirky, the Borodin quartet was familiar but enjoyable, and the highlight- the Beethoven Archduke trio- was just spectacular, best version I've ever heard. All the performers were wonderful. Some distraction at first, due to some late audience arrivals (and the usual cough- prone folks), but this was a minor annoyance.
Ludwig van Beethoven’s glorious Archduke Trio, a vital landmark of the piano trio literature and one of the composer’s crowning achievements, anchors this afternoon’s selection of chamber music masterworks. The program also features Erwin Schulhoff’s Concertino for Flute, Viola, and Double Bass, a delicious foray into the entrancing sound world of an uncommon trio of instruments; and Alexander Borodin’s tender love letter to his wife, the deeply felt Second String Quartet.
