TSO Classics: Brahms’ Requiem
April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Tulsa Oratorio Chorus joins Tulsa Symphony for a work that became the central and longest work of Brahms’ career, the German Requiem. Unconvinced of man’s afterlife, Brahms composed this work after the deaths of his mother and his beloved friend and fellow composer Robert Schumann. “Ein Deutsches Requiem” was not intended as a mass for the dead like his contemporaries and earlier composers had written, but instead as a work of consolation for those left behind. James Bagwell is guest conductor for this concert.
