Brahms, Ein deutsches Requiem

Price, Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight

 

With the Fairfield County Chorale Orchestra

 

Brahms’s German Requiem is considered the crowning achievement of his career. His technique of composition in his amazing work brought critics to compare him with Bach and Beethoven. This towering work was likely inspired by the death of Brahms’ mother and that of his close friend, composer Robert Schumann. The Chorale will perform Brahms’ original composition.
Florence Price’s Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight is based on a 1914 poem by American poet Vachel Lindsay. It portrays Abraham Lincoln walking through the streets of Springfield, Illinois, stirred from his eternal sleep. He is a man, who, even in death, is burdened by the tragedies of the modern world. Price’s luscious post-romantic writing and plea for peace in the face of WWI are a perfect companion to Brahms.

Palmeri, Misatango

Selections by Ola Gjeilo and Evan Fein

 

March comes in like a lamb… the Misatango, or Mass a Buenos Aires, features Shinjoo Cho on the traditional bandoneón. Misatango is Martín Palmieri’s fascinating combination of a classic Latin mass and Nuevo Tango rhythms and syncopation. It has been described as a work both sultry and sacred. In contrast, we present the tranquility of contemporary composer, Ola Gjeilo, and a world premiere by Evan Fein, composed specially for our concert!
