About

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.

Reviews

Markus Stenz leads BSO, UM Concert Choir, stellar soloists in 'German Requiem'

Making her debut with the orchestra, soprano Lisette Oropesa spun out a radiant sound that communicated every hopeful, calming word in the fifth movement.
