|Brahms and Rilling|
||Chorale singers have been busy rehearsing one of our favorite works, the “German Requiem” of Johannes Brahms. We look forward to singing it for you later this month, under the baton of Helmuth Rilling, one of the world’s leading interpreters of Brahms’s music. The first half of the concert will be devoted to an in-depth exploration of the music and the meaning of the work, with musical examples provided by the Chorale and the Minnesota Orchestra. After the intermission, we’ll sing the work in its entirety.
