Brahms Requiem and Tragic Overture

May 18 @ 7:30 PM - 9:45 PM


Our May concert features the magnificent Requiem by Brahms – perhaps the most unique of all Requiems. As Brahms himself said, it is less a Requiem for the dead than one intended to comfort the living; less a work of religion than a work of humanity.
Musically, its carefully balanced architecture is matched by an equally firm musical structure. The Requiem unfolds as a gentle, lyrical expression of consolation, through rich melody, untroubled sweetness and beauty, into episodes of monumental power.
This choral performance of the Requiem will be accompanied by Brahms’ Tragic Overture, a free-standing symphonic movement for orchestra.
