Fauré Requiem

French composer Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem—in a chamber orchestra setting of this text—highlights this program of inspiring and uplifting music. Acclaimed Canadian baritone Russell Braun sings Brahms’s deeply-moving Four Serious Songs, in a beautiful version with original preludes and orchestration by Detlev Glanert, and Montreal composer Samy Moussa’s celebratory work opens the concert.

Concert running time is approximately two hours.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada. Ce projet est financé en partie par le gouvernement du Canada.
