Brahms Academic Festival Overture
OSSCS Concerto Competition winner
Fauré Requiem in D minor

Johannes Brahms never attended college but was flattered by an honorary degree from the University of Breslau. His Academic Festival Overture was a light-hearted response (incorporating well-known student drinking songs) to the school’s shameless request for a musical “thank-you note.” Gabriel Fauré was employed as a church musician for more than 40 years (over half his lifetime), but viewed his work as an organist and choirmaster as a means to a paycheck rather than a spiritual calling. “My Requiem was composed for nothing;for fun, if I may be permitted to say so!” he wrote. “Perhaps instinctively I sought to break loose from convention. I've been accompanying burial services at the organ for so long now! I've had it up to here with all that. I wanted to do something else.”
