Brahms German Requiem.

The North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra will be performing on November 11th at Salem State College in Salem, MA More information is available at the orchestra's web site. We'll be doing Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #2, and Brahms' Ein Deusches Requiem. The Requiem is one of my favorites; I've been lucky enough to have performed it several times in the past couple years. It even has a (smallish) solo for the 2nd trombone. (Not quite as terrifyingly exposed as the "Tuba Mirum" in the Mozart requiem). At some point I should polish up a rant on why a quirk of translation caused the low brass to be justly rewarded by the composers of the form...
