Chapter House Choir, York
21 March, 2020 7:30pm
York Minster, York, YO1 7HH
This concert offers a rare opportunity to hear Brahms’s own arrangement of his Requiem with piano duet accompaniment, revealing the work in a new light – more intimate and transparent, revealing a wider variety of choral timbres and textures. Celebrated singers Marcus Farnsworth and Susan Young join the Chapter House Choir and pianists Eleanor Kornas and Polly Sharpe in the contemplative acoustic of the Minster’s Quire, for what promises to be an intimate but emotionally powerful performance.
The concert also features the world premiere of a piece by award-winning emerging composer Lillie Harris, written especially for this performance.
