The MSO Chorus steps into the spotlight for Ein deutsches Requiem
Recognised as one of the greatest choral works ever written, Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem is a message of hope, consolation and compassion. The MSO Chorus – appearing without orchestra for the first time since 2015 and accompanied by piano – will bring this most beautiful piece to life.
In contrast to the Roman Catholic Requiem Mass, Ein deutsches Requiem focuses on the living rather than praying for the dead; sympathy and comfort are recurring themes throughout the piece. It carries the timeless message of consolation and hope in times of tragedy.
Voice was humanity’s earliest instrument, and is the first musical element a child reaches for when first introduced to music. The MSO Chorus represents the pinnacle of vocal music in Melbourne, and the opportunity to hear 100 choristers in the acoustic perfection of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall is unmissable.
Presented by Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
Warren Trevelyan-Jones conductor
Lee Abrahmsen soprano
Simon Meadows baritone
Tom Griffiths piano*
Donald Nicolson piano*
*In this special performance, the MSO Chorus will be accompanied by ‘piano four hands’, a duet with both players playing on a single piano. While these alternative arrangements are very common, what makes this reduction so exceptional is that Brahms himself wrote it.
