Gloriana Chamber Choir presents: BRAHMS GERMAN REQUIEM

March 4, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

$35

From its first performance Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem was immediately recognised as a masterpiece of exceptional vision, confirming Brahms’ reputation as a composer of international stature. Brahms drew his texts from the Lutheran Bible – texts that emphasise faith in the Resurrection and comfort to the living.

The work’s seven movements are arranged in a palindrome around the central fourth movement Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen, which marks a shift from the solemnity of the first three movements to the certainty of comfort in the last three. Ein Deutsches Requiem is performed here in a version created by Brahms featuring a two-piano accompaniment.

Bach exerted a profound influence on Brahms and his motet Jesu, meine Freude BWV 227 uses the same palindromic structure to unify its strongly-characterised musical ideas.

For this performance we are thrilled to be joined by Andrea Katz and Dean Sky-Lucas as our duo pianists, alongside soprano soloist Erika Tandiono and bass-baritone soloist Nicholas Dinopoulos.

Tickets : $35
