“Why is light cast upon the sorrowful?” These are the first words of Brahms’ Motet Op.74. And the answer to that question unfolds as one listens to the program:
Composers of the so-called Romantic period dwell on emotions of sadness and longing and out of these emotions comes some of the most movingly beautiful and joyful music.
From Madrigals by Monteverdi on themes of love to Ravel’s luscious Chansons, this program includes an arrangement for voices of Elgar’s incredible Nimrod from his Enigma Variations and Samuel Barber’s haunting vocal version of his Adagio for Strings.
