Johannes Brahms – genius composer, eloquent conductor, brilliant concert pianist – never was more happy than when he was playing piano duets with his closest friend, Clara Schumann. This intimacy and joy is palpable in the great master’s transcription of his German Requiem for piano four-hands, soloists, and chorus. Seraphic Fire revisits the indelible masterpiece that garnered the ensemble its first Grammy® nomination.
 
Pre-show talk: A Requiem for All of Humanity
Join us an hour before each performance for a pre-concert conversation with Chorus master Dr. James K. Bass as he discusses the incredibly human and personal nature of this work, and why Brahms added the 5th movement about the end of life, “feeling love, the love of a mother.”
