J.S. Bach: Orchestral Suite No. 3
Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem
Written after the passing of both his mother and close friend Robert Schumann, Brahms’ deeply personal and compelling A German Requiem gives eloquent comfort to the grieving. Opening the program is Bach’s third orchestral suite featuring “Air,” one of the most famous movements in Baroque music.
