As new residents in San Francisco, this was our first time in Davies Symphony Hall. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the performance and the ambience of the theater. Especially we were happy that the seat rows were arranged at a much steeper angle than in other theaters we have attended, so that every seat had a good view.
Quotes & Highlights
“If Verdi’s Requiem is a chilling cry from the gut and Fauré‘s is a tender prayer of remembrance, Brahms’ is an intimate expression of comfort.” —_The New York Times _
Like a great meal, the best concerts are steeped in contrasting colors and flavors. Here, the motet of 17th-century German composer Heinrich Schütz, an innovator in his time, is deliciously distinct from the aural experience afforded by Schoenberg’s vibrant and multihued Five Pieces for Orchestra. Served as the main course is the master Brahms, who made use of German translations of biblical texts as well as poetry to create his seven-movement Requiem that enjoys continued enormous popularity today.
