Most musical works struggle to capture a single mood -- only the very greatest try to run the entire scale of human emotion. Brahms' monumental A German Requiem not only attempts this feat, but succeeds like no other choral piece written before or since. Now you can experience its fierce intensity and dramatic scope as baritone Brian Mulligan and the Pacific Chorale, under the baton of Maestro John Alexander, perform this grand musical masterwork at the Segerstrom Concert Hall, accompanied by the Pacific Symphony. When the Chorale last tackled the piece in 2006, the Orange County Register raved that their performance "reminded us ... why Brahms' Requiem remains one of the towering works of the repertoire." It's also one of the chorale's most requested pieces, making it the perfect choice for the season opener.
