Carlow Choral Society presents a magnificent performance of Brahms German Requiem in the Cathedral of the Assumption, Carlow on Friday 09 June 2023 at 20:00.
This is one of the greatest choral masterpieces which brought fame to the German Composer after its first performance in 1869. Composed between 1865 and 1868, Brahms chose to compose a Requiem unburdened by the past. Brahms was a very individual composer and his soaring German Requiem sounds like nothing else ever composed. The Composer himself called it a ‘human requiem’.
Conducted by their Musical Director, Blanaid Murphy, with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and internationally acclaimed soloists; Soprano: Ailish Tynan and Baritone: Benjamin Russell.
