Brahms’ German Requiem was a piece not composed for the mournful, but as an effort to console the living. From ascending strings to its unparalleled choruses, this requiem tells the story of humanity where audience members can witness the composer’s profound journey from grief to acceptance.
As a part of the ASO’s Sound Investment Program, the orchestra will be present Jihyun Kim’s The Yellow House. This new piece is co-commissioned by the American Youth Symphony in Los Angeles where Carlos Izcaray also serves as Music Director.
