Seraphic Fire Season Finale. Brahms "Requien"

2 posts in this topic

Today I went to the closing season of the amazing Seraphic Fire, which picked for the occasion

-(“Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45”). It is said that Brahms got his inspiration either from his sadness on his mother’s death in 1865 or from his lingering feelings over Robert Schumann’s passing in 1856. This is a massive production with seven movements-(the longest Brahms ever composed, ranging from 65 to 80 minutes)-and includes a full orchestra, chorus and soloists. The magnificent event took place at the All Saints Episcopal Church in Fort Lauderdale. The Requiem is just a marvelous, dramatic, heavy composition that just "gets" you up there...somewhere. I left the place in clouds. Bravo for the Seraphic Fire..!!!
