Ein deutsches Requiem and Tragic Overture
Road (world premiere) and Ranjbaran We Are One (New
In Brahms's time, there were no digital audio systems, no
sound-canceling headphones, no rooms acoustically designed to play
recordings that aspired to emulate the extraordinary sound of live
performance. There was only one way to hear Ein deutsches
There were no MP3s and no downloads of Handel. To hear Messiah
meant hearing it in performance. And imagine the excitement of
a world premiere which could only be experienced in a concert hall.
To this day, there is nothing quite like hearing the works of great
choral composers performed live on a grand scale - with a chorus of
two hundred voices, great soloists, a world-class orchestra, and a
masterful conductor - in a magnificent venue designed
specifically for musical performance.
In its 2017/18 season, the Oratorio Society of New York will bring
great choral works to life with three concerts at Carnegie Hall led
by preeminent conductor Kent Tritle, including the New York premiere
of Behzad Ranjbaran's We Are One and the world premiere of
Paul Moravec's Sanctuary Road, an oratorio about the
Underground Railroad, commissioned by the Society.
Individual concert tickets ranges from $25 to $100; season
subscriptions from $70 to $252. To order, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Single tickets available through Carnegie Hall in September 2017.
Put down the headphones. Come hear grand choral music live.
