I N F O Written to express Brahms' grief over two significant deaths in his life, this piece solidified his reputation as a composer, placing him among the Three B's of music: Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. It put Biblical language in the composer's vernacular as Brahms assembled the libretto from Luther's German Bible translation, making this the first and best known work titled Requiem that is not in Latin. Vesper Chorale will perform the work with Brahms' own arrangement of the orchestral parts reduced for two pianists. Join us to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation with this masterpiece. Pre-concert lecture begins 30 minutes before each concert. T I C K E T S $14 Adult, $12 Senior, $7 Student/Child Tickets are available at www.MusicalArtsIndiana.org or at the door.
