BRAHMS A German Requiem
Truly magnificent! The Kansas City Symphony and Chorus will fill Helzberg Hall with massive, sweeping sound as they present this monument of the choral repertoire, Brahms’ majestic German Requiem. To complement, the concert begins with masterworks by two French Impressionists. Experience Ravel’s hypnotic Pavane and two magical Debussy Nocturnes — “Nuages” (Clouds) and “Fêtes” (Festivals) — with their transparent orchestrations, exotic harmonies and elusive rhythms that mirror the aesthetics of the Impressionist visual artists.
Please note: The G. Kenneth and Ann Baum concert comments will not take place for these performances.
