The original ‘German’

Brahms’ beloved Requiem gets four-handed treatment in Westwood

 

Two choirs, two pianists, two soloists and two conductors — no ark required.  Sunday’s forthcoming performance of ‘A German Requiem‘ by Johannes Brahms will not soon be forgotten.  With the combined forces of the UCLA community’s University Campus Choir and the Chancel Choir from Westwood United Methodist Church, conductors Alex Ruggieri and Gregory Norton will direct one of the most moving masterworks in the choral repertoire, accompanied by the pianistic artistry of Haesung Park and Peter Fennema.  The concert features vocal soloists Lucine Marukyan (soprano) and Edward Levy (bass), and will offer an opportunity to experience the composer’s own, rarely-heard arrangement for piano duet.  The concert is free, including secure, covered parking in the structure next to the church (below Belmont Village).
