STRAVINSKY Funeral Song
BRAHMS A German Requiem

 

One of Brahms’ greatest works is brought to life with the SLSO and Chorus in a moving, reflective work from the soaring strings to the monumental choral writing.

 

  • Unlike most requiems, Brahms’ German Requiem did not follow the Latin text, but instead focused on the German language to connect with audiences on the profound topic of loss and hope.
  • Did you know: Most musical requiems focus on death and the afterlife, but Brahms’ shifted his emphasis towards comforting the living.
  • Program recommended for choral enthusiasts.
