Rochester Oratorio Society: German Requiem
The ROS's second masterworks concert takes place on March 13, 2015, 7:30 P.M. at Hochstein Performance Hall. The program opens with Norman Dello Joio's classic "Jubilant Song," an energetic, hopeful setting of Walt Whitman poetry that has become a choral favorite. Johannes Brahms's "German Requiem" offers a darker but similarly consoling perspective on mankind's effort to fathom human destiny. The ROS performs this majestic work in Brahms's own setting for piano 4-hands, with Nazareth College faculty member Linda Boianova joining Kevin Nitsch in the accompaniment. Soloists are the Finnish soprano Jenni Lattila and baritone Benjamin Bloomfield, both of New York. Lattila makes her Rochester debut with this performance; Bloomfield has performed leading roles with the Rochester Lyric Opera. Both artists pursue international performance careers. Mendelssohn's popular anthem "Verleih uns Frieden" ("Grant us Peace") completes the program.
