The University of Warwick Symphony Orchestra and Chorus present two masterpieces from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Shostakovich’s ninth symphony is much lighter than his previous works; pellucid and brighter in mood but no less powerful. Brahms’ German Requiem was instrumental in establishing the composer as one of the masters of his age. His Requiem explores issues of life and mortality in a most profound and moving way.
