Brahms' Requiem Digital Stream
Nov 01, 2020
Civic Center Music Hall
Thelma Gaylord Performing Arts Theatre
Presented By Canterbury Voices
Canterbury Voices begins their season with Johannes Brahms’ choral masterpiece, Ein deutsches Requiem, written after the deaths of his mother and composer Robert Schumann. It became the central work of Brahms’ career, one that established him as a composer of major stature, and linked two of the most important spheres of his lifelong musical endeavor – the vocal and the symphonic. Canterbury chooses Brahms’ own piano transcriptions as the accompaniment: two pianos, four hands.

About Guest Artist Sarah Coburn
American soprano Sarah Coburn is captivating international audiences with her “precision placement, mercury speed, and a gorgeous liquid gold tone, gilded by a thrilling top and bottom register” (The Globe and Mail). Following her performances as Lucie de Lammermoor at Glimmerglass Opera, the New York Observer noted “she turns out to have qualities that have made legends out of so many of her predecessors, from Adelina Patti to Maria Callas: stage charisma, a thrilling upper register and, crucially, a fearlessness about abandoning herself to opera’s most abandoned heroine … this is a palpably exciting voice … Ms. Coburn is a budding prima donna of exceptional promise.”
