Schumann: Requiem, Op. 148 Schumann, Brahms, Copland, & Corigliano

05/03/2020 to 05/03/2020

The Kennedy Center Concert Hall, 2700 F St NW, Washington, DC 20566

Scott Tucker, conductor; Elizabeth Bishop, mezzo-soprano; Katie Baughman, soprano; Hillary Grobe, mezzo-soprano; Matthew Hill, tenor; Matthew Scollin, bass-baritone; Choral Arts Chorus and Orchestra. From the wonder of creation, to the heart-ache of loss, to the deep peace that derives from the honest acceptance of our mortality, Artistic Director Scott Tucker brings a sense of timelessness to the concert hall in a program that takes listeners on a journey from the beginning to the end. The sound painting depicting acts of creation in Copland’s In the Beginning and the innocence and wonder of youth felt in Corigliano’s Fern Hill are contrasted by the grief-stricken wanderings for lost love in Brahms’ Alto Rhapsody. The program concludes with Schumann’s hauntingly beautiful and neglected Requiem, Op. 148. Schumann once said “One writes a requiem for oneself.” Tragically, Schumann completed this requiem after committing himself to the asylum where he would spend the remainder of his life. His requiem story is an eerie parallel to Mozart’s who also believed he was writing a requiem for his own funeral. Tickets start at $15.
