Perth Symphonic Chorus is presenting Brahms' A German Requiem on Saturday 23rd September 2017 at Perth Concert Hall. Tickets are now on sale for one night only performance.
The German Requiem is a work of gentle, personal consolation and noble spirituality. Scored for large choir, orchestra and soloists, it soars to splendid romantic expressiveness with achingly beautiful arias. Unlike other oratorios and requiems, the focus of this work is less on fire and brimstone and more on large magnificent choruses meshed with solo arias that express the emotional intensity of the bereaved.
Conducted by Dr Margaret Pride, the chorus will be accompanied by an expanded version of the Perth Baroque Orchestra led by master violinist Paul Wright. Soprano icon Sara Macliver will add a sensitivity and exquisite beauty to the performance of this great work, and baritone Christopher Richardson will delight with his expressive and mellifluous singing that's gained him international recognition.
Deeply moving, profound and powerful, Brahms' A German Requiem is not to be missed. Tickets are now on sale through perthconcerthall.com.au or ticketmaster.com.au and priced between $20.00 and $95.00.
