NC Symphony: Brahms’ Requiem

When: April 12-13, 8 p.m. 2013

From the opening pulse of descending cellos through rich choral passages and bright solo vocals, Brahms' German Requiem feels restless with life. Written shortly after Brahms' mother died, this is his longest and arguably most ambitious work—a requiem mass in German rather than Latin, focused as much on the surviving mourners as on the departed. The North Carolina Symphony is joined by baritone Mark Schnaible and soprano Ilana Davidson, as well as the North Carolina Master Chorale, under Grant Llewellyn's direction for this sacred and cathartic work. The symphony reprises the Friday performance in Meymandi on Saturday before moving to UNC-Chapel Hill's Memorial Hall on Sunday. —Chris Vitiello
