Fauré Requiem

About This Concert:

Casual Concert = FUN, COMFORTABLE and a little DIFFERENT than what you might expect.

Includes:

  • $5 Happy Hour
  • Local craft brews
  • Meet the musicians onstage

The spirit of Paris runs like the Seine through this program with two 18th-century symphonies dedicated to the City of Light and a hauntingly beautiful 19th-century religious work by one of Paris’ most treasured composers, Fauré.

RIGEL
Symphony No. 4

MOZART
Symphony No. 31, Paris

FAURÉ
Pavane

FAURÉ
Requiem

Fun Facts:

  • Both Mozart and Rigel were born in German-speaking countries and came as young men to Paris hoping for fame; Rigel found it, but Mozart didn’t and returned home to Austria.
  • Mozart’s Symphony No. 31 was premiered in Paris by a larger orchestra than the composer had ever heard, prompting his father to quip that the French must like noisy symphonies.
  • Fauré’s Requiem is filled with a quiet beauty, “dominated from beginning to end,” said the composer, “by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest.”
  • Casual Concerts include: $5 pre-concert happy hour, local craft brew, and an opportunity to meet musicians onstage after the performance.
