Rather than writing music for the Latin Requiem Mass, Brahms selected an entirely different set of biblical texts in German and with no liturgical purpose. Composed for the living rather than the departed, his monumental, transformative Ein deutsches Requiem is woven throughout with a clear awareness of life's transience and our need to be comforted.
Handel Choir of Baltimore and Camerata, the select choir of University of Maryland Baltimore County directed by Stephen Caracciolo, present Brahms' choral masterwork with guest soloists and full orchestra.
This concert is made possible in part by James and Carolyn Frenkil Charitable Foundation, T. Rowe Price Foundation, and Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences.
Special thanks to Preston and Nancy Athey for their sustaining support of our 2012-2013 concert season.
