Brahms and Schubert | New Mexico Symphonic Chorus & Orchestra
Schubert, Mass No. 2 in G, D. 167
Brahms, Alto Rhapsodie, Op. 53
Brahms, Schicksalslied, Op. 54
Roger Melone, conductor
Jacqueline Zander-Wall, mezzo-soprano
This shortest and simplest mass by Schubert, the Mass No. 2 in G, exudes beauty from start to finish. In parts reminiscent of Haydn,
the six movements range from lyrical and melodic to fully orchestrated intensity. Ultimately in the final Agnus Dei, some of Schubert's most peaceful music is revealed.
Brahms' radiant Alto Rhapsodie is among his most satisfying, and expertly crafted. What begins with a mood of despair moves from darkness to light, and a vision of hope and happiness.
In his expressive Schicksalslied, Brahms evokes a contrasting universe. The music ranges from the unhappy realms of a lower plane, to a mood full of eternal peace, beauty and celestial beings.
