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 _

Description

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.
