It was a wonderful concert. The 45 minute "What Makes This Great" exploration of the requiem which preceded the performance was very well done. We had orchestra seats which I appreciated. The orchestra, chorus and soloists were all superb.
Quotes & Highlights
- "You’ve never heard a classical music concert like this before ... Kapilow’s exuberance transported the audience back into the mind of the composer and his contemporaries.... it brings a whole new level of appreciation." --<em>San Diego Union-Tribune</em>
- “This was a knockout combination of education and entertainment ... Hearing each song after Kapilow revealed its musical secrets was like meeting a celebrity just after reading his or her autobiography. Throughout the show Kapilow never once sounded dry or academic — but he did sound smart, enthusiastic, and stunningly articulate. He has a remarkable ability to make genius understandable to a general audience.” --Theatermania.com

Ever wonder why the Requiem is universally recognized as one of music’s greatest masterpieces? Wonder no longer! Kapilow unravels the mysteries of this profound work, the composer’s final composition, written as Mozart faced his own imminent death.
