Why See Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Dutoit Conducts the Faure Requiem?
a special concert
Culminating Easter weekend, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Charles Dutoit present Faure's serenely moving Requiem. One of the influential French composer's most well-known works, it is a sprawling meditation on death and faith taken from the Catholic Mass For The Dead that evokes the freeing nature of our final journey, with beautiful melodies infused with touching movements.
Composed during one of his summer retreats, Requiem is a calm and peaceful piece that reflects Faure's own questioning relationship with religion, rather than the more sombre sounds heard in other classical works from the time.
