MARCH 18-19, 2023- MUSIC OF THE SPHERES

GUEST CONDUCTOR MICHAEL GERDES

Brahms’s colossal Requiem may have been inspired by the death of his mother in 1864, a loss which caused him
profound grief. This large-scale work for orchestra, chorus, and soprano and baritone soloists is performed in German, a departure from the traditional Latin. Also on this program, we’ll feature the 2021 Nee Commission winner, Alex Stephenson. The program will open with Missy Mazzoli’s “minimalist” gymnopédie for small orchestra, Music for Orbiting Spheres.
