Brahms German Requiem by Willoughby Symphony Choir
23 July 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEST
Brahms’ greatest and most frequently performed choral work, completed in 1866, has proved to be universally popular.
The Willoughby Symphony Choir, one of the finest community choirs in Australia, will present this work in a spine-tingling and exciting performance with a large orchestra and soloists, under the baton of Peter Ellis.
The work does not follow the traditional text and form of the Requiem Mass but instead has been set to selected passages from the Lutheran Bible. Hopes, fears and resurrection are emphasised rather than church-based spirituality, faith and judgement.
It’s a performance not to be missed.
