Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem
This evening's programme promises to shed new light on a trio of Viennese masters that are rarely combined in the same concert. ABC brings a wealth of experience in the Bach Passions and the choral music of Heinrich Schütz to Ein Deutsches Requiem, key influences behind a Brahmsian sound world which is at once archaic and intensely Romantic.
Roderick Williams OBE, internationally acclaimed as a Lieder singer, works his magic in breathing new life into a text in Mahler's first great song cycle, a searingly autobiographical portrait of lost love.
In addition, ABC will perform four intensely spiritual works by their 'in house' composer - fresh from the experience of singing the same Bruckner motets in the massive spaces of Lisbon's Jerónimos monastery.
The spirit of Vienna will be present throughout with ghostly echoes of the Waltz and Ländler, the ominous tread of the Funeral March combining with the newly minted sounds of nature.
