Ein Deutsches Requiem – Brahms 

Saturday 21 March 2020, 7:30 pm

The Quire, York Minster

Director: Benjamin Morris
Soprano: Susan Young
Baritone: Marcus Farnsworth
Pianists: Eleanor Kornas and Polly Sharpe

This concert offers a rare opportunity to hear Brahms’ own arrangement of his Requiem with piano accompaniment, revealing the work in a new light – more intimate and transparent, revealing a wider variety of choral timbre and texture. Celebrated singers Marcus Farnsworth and Susan Young join the Chapter House Choir and pianists Eleanor Kornas and Polly Sharpe in the contemplative acoustic of the Minster’s Quire, for what promises to be an intimate but emotionally powerful performance.

This concert will also include the world-premiere of a new piece by award-winning emerging composer Lillie Harris, created especially for this performance.

Tickets – £15 and £13.50 concessions, students/under 18s £5, available from York Minster box office and using the button below.
