Composer Richard Strauss harnesses music’s ability to express the inexpressible in Death and Transfiguration, a moving journey into a blazing eternity. And Strauss recalls this youthful work in the serene farewell of Four Last Songs. Strauss’s late masterpiece is sensuously in touch with the joys of life, even as life slips away. The songs luxuriate in the autumnal richness of an opulent orchestra and the beauty of the soprano voice, here the exquisite Erin Wall.
Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem for soprano, baritone, choir and orchestra remembers the dead and consoles the living with music of poignant elegance and heavenly beauty. It is one of the most beloved sacred works in the repertoire – timeless, contemplative and radiant.
