Concerts in the Village Presents Brahms Requiem (Ein deutsches Requiem), Apr 14

Concerts in the Village (CITV) presents the Requiem (Ein deutsches Requiem) of Johannes Brahms, with the Broad Street Chorale and Orchestra, and soloists Heather Green and Richard Byrne. CITV Artistic Director, David Smith, conducts.

The orchestral and choral forces of CITV perform one of the most moving works in all of music literature, the great Requiem (Ein deutsches Requiem) of Johannes Brahms. Unlike nearly every other requiem, this well-known masterpiece is very much a celebration of life rather than a liturgically-based memorial to the dead. Once heard, the beauty of Brahms’ writing cannot easily be forgotten.

Olivia Colman won a Globe for her performance as Queen Anne. Also with Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos who gave us The Lobster.
