11/4/2017
More
Feuersnot (Need for (or lack of) fire), Op. 50, is a Singgedicht (sung poem) or opera in one act by Richard Strauss. The German libretto was written by Ernst von Wolzogen, based on J. Ketel's report "Das erloschene Feuer zu Audenaerde". It was Strauss' second opera. Thematically, the opera has been interpreted as a parody of Richard Wagner's idea of "redemption through love", with the character of Kunrad representing Strauss himself. The conceptual framework for the opera stems from the...

The Messa da Requiem is a musical setting of the Catholic funeral mass (Requiem) for four soloists, double choir and orchestra by Giuseppe Verdi.

14025 Mahler: Symphony No. 7

10/28/2017
More
Symphony No. 7 by Gustav Mahler was written in 1904–05, with repeated revisions to the scoring. It is sometimes referred to by the title Song of the Night (German: Lied der Nacht), which Mahler never knew (and certainly would be unlikely to have sanctioned). Although the symphony is often described as being in the key of E minor, its tonal scheme is more complicated. The symphony's first movement moves from B minor (introduction) to E minor, and the work ends with a rondo finale in C...

The Grande Messe des Morts is one of Berlioz's best-known works, with a tremendous orchestration of woodwind and brass instruments, including four antiphonal off-stage brass ensembles placed at the corners of the concert stage.

The War Requiem was performed for the consecration of the new Coventry Cathedral, which was built after the original fourteenth-century structure was destroyed in a World War II bombing raid.

14022 Franz von Suppé: Requiem in D minor

10/25/2017
More
Requiem in D minor (1855) is for soli, choir and orchestra. Despite his success in the operetta world, Suppé repeatedly strove to leave his mark in other, completely different, musical domains. We can see this especially in his sacred works, many of which he composed in his later years. The Requiem in D minor can be regarded as the apotheosis of his sacred oeuvre. He dedicated the work to his friend and mentor Franz Pokorny, who directed several theaters simultaneously (in Vienna, Baden,...
