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

David Robertson leads a program of contrasting emotional content. Rossini’s overture is widely loved for its wit and sparkle, and Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, with its mazurka-themed final movement, reveals Chopin’s blossoming compositional exuberance. Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony is darker, suggesting that even the sunniest of personalities has moments of doubt. His distinct personality and style still shine through, even amidst the air of sadness.
