Handel Choir of Baltimore and Camerata, the select choir of University of Maryland Baltimore County directed by Stephen Caracciolo, present Brahms' choral masterwork with guest soloists and full orchestra.
Rather than writing music for the Latin Requiem Mass, Brahms selected an entirely different set of biblical texts in German and with no liturgical purpose. Composed for the living rather than the departed, his monumental, transformative "Ein deutsches Requiem" is woven throughout with a clear awareness of life's transience and our need to be comforted.
Join us at 3 p.m. for a lecture by Carl B. Schmidt, professor of music history and literature at Towson University.
Go to the Handel Choir website for directions and more information.
