MAR 1 A GERMAN REQUIEM

Serene and deeply moving, Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) is a sublime fusion of the composer’s mastery of vocal and symphonic music. Set to texts from the Lutheran Bible, it offers a message of consolation to the living rather than judgment of the dead.

MAR 13 DAUGHTER

The Westminster Choir will perform two works that approach ancient stories of loss and transcendence in different ways. David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Little Match Girl Passion relates Hans Christian Andersen’s poignant tale about The Little Match Girl. Lang masterfully sets this story in the format of J. S. Bach’s St. Matthew's Passion using chorale texts and texts by Picander from Bach’s passion to present the Little Match Girl’s story in a unique light. This work will be paired with 17th century composer Giacomo Carissimi’s Jephte. This early Baroque work tells the Old Testament story of the general Jephte, who vows that if God brings him victory in battle, he will sacrifice the first person he sees upon arriving home. That person is his daughter.
