Susanna Phillips, soprano
John Chest, baritone
and the Orchestra of the Society
Revel in the Romantic lyricism of an all-Brahms concert.
Two of Brahms’ greatest choral masterpieces open the Society’s season. Ein deutsches Requiem, one of Brahms’ most beloved works, comforts all who mourn with a tapestry of grief and hope that is simultaneously personal and universal. The exquisite Schicksalslied, whose musical style is reminiscent of the Requiem, explores the immutability of destiny, contrasting the idyllic existence in the spirit world with the struggles of humanity.
Experience the lushness of Brahms in New York’s premiere concert hall, performed by the chorus that calls it home.
