Marin Oratorio: Johannes Brahms – Liebeslieder-Walzer and Ein deutsches Requiem
Brahms the enchanting and the eternal will be presented in this program of two of his most timeless works. The Liebeslieder-Walzer and Neue Liebeslieder-Walzer, his lavish Viennese settings of love poems of dalliance, affection, and unrequited passion, will feature guest soloists Christa Pfeiffer, Katherine McKee, Colby Roberts, and Jeffrey Fields, and will be accompanied by pianists Paul Smith and Jeffrey Paul. The Marin Oratorio chorus will be accompanied by full orchestra for the majestic Ein deutsches Requiem. Brahms the agnostic spent years shaping this not as a dogmatic, liturgical requiem, but rather as personal human requiem and a solace for all humankind.
All proceeds go to support the programs of Marin Oratorio.
