London Philharmonic Orchestra: A German Requiem

The LPO perform Brahms's classic

A Requiem unlike any other, Brahms’s A German Requiem is a piece that carries the gift of spiritual comfort rather than the threat of impending judgment. Christoph Eschenbach conducts it here, after a performance of Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht, based on a controversial poem telling the story of a woman confessing her infidelity to her lover. The moonlit forest location of this discussion contrives to give Schoenberg a backdrop upon which to base his harmonically rich, late-romantic style, one of the first to give him widespread attention. Featuring: - Christoph Eschenbach conductor - Sarah Tynan soprano - Matthias Goerne baritone - London Philharmonic Choir - London Philharmonic Orchestra Please note that seats will be allocated on the night upon arrival.
