BRAHMS A GERMAN REQUIEM

Canceled

Overview

Clara Schumann, close friend of Brahms, opens our 206th season with this sublimely contemplative gem for a capella chorus (an H+H premiere). Then it’s Brahms’s choral masterpiece, unsurpassed in its radiant beauty and profoundly moving majesty. The H+H period instrument orchestra and chorus will be led by renowned conductor Harry Bicket who returns to H+H after a 20-year absence.
