BRAHMS REQUIEM WITH A DIFFERENCE
Southampton Choral Society is performing Brahms Requiem (in English) on Saturday 5 April, 2014, accompanied by two pianos, as it was originally first performed in England. The choir of 130 voices is therefore able to bring out all the subtleties of the exquisite harmonies and sheer beauty of this relatively short Requiem, which is believed to have been composed by Brahms in memory of his late mother.
Karen Kingsley and Alban Rees Jones, both eminent pianists and musicians well known in the South, will be delighting the audience with a display of their musical expertise during the first half of the programme and following the interval will return to accompany the Southampton Choral Society under the baton of talented musical director Peter Gambie. The work includes the wonderful “How Lovely are Thy Dwellings” as well as the other spine tingling movements which Brahms has written on this incredibly colourful emotional journey. Please come along and enjoy what promises to be an unusual and stunning evening.
