fp_144s

On October 4 and October 5, 2014, the St. Louis Symphony performs Four Serious Songs, by Johannes Brahms, with linking preludes and a postlude by the 21st-century composer Detlev Glanert, who also arranged the songs for orchestra.  After the intermission, the St. Louis Symphony Chorus joins the orchestra for Brahms’s sublime A German Requiem. Markus Stenz conducts, and the soprano Carolyn Sampson and the bass-baritone Patrick Carfizzi are the soloists. The program is here:
