Concerts in the Village Presents Brahms’ Requiem (Ein deutsches Requiem), Apr 14

CITV-Poster-Brahms.jpgConcerts in the Village (CITV) presents the Requiem (Ein deutsches Requiem) of Johannes Brahms, with the Broad Street Chorale and Orchestra, and soloists Heather Green and Richard Byrne. CITV Artistic Director, David Smith, conducts.

The orchestral and choral forces of CITV perform one of the most moving works in all of music literature, the great Requiem (Ein deutsches Requiem) of Johannes Brahms. Unlike nearly every other requiem, this well-known masterpiece is very much a celebration of life rather than a liturgically-based memorial to the dead. Once heard, the beauty of Brahms’ writing cannot easily be forgotten.

Sunday, April 14, 2019 / 3pm

LOCATION:
Kinderhook Reformed Church

He holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from SUNY at Stony Brook, a Master of Music degree from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, and a Bachelor of Science degree from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri.

Canadian pianist Martin Néron is acclaimed for his performances of art song repertoire and research in linguistics. He has accompanied vocal recitals at Lincoln Center, CAMI Hall, the Kosciuszko Foundation, the United Nations, the Metropolitan Room, the Onassis Center, and the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, among other venues. As a recording artist, Néron has released albums with multiple labels, including his latest recording project, Mauthausen (2015), which features the Shanghai Quartet, clarinetist Igor Begelman, and mezzo-soprano Lina Orfanou. Néron has also recorded several concerts for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Néron holds degrees from the Manhattan School of Music (D.M.A.), Westminster Choir College (M.M.), and Université de Montréal (B.M.). He is the founder and artistic director of the Vocalis Consort, a group of collaborative musicians and artists devoted to sharing their passion for art song, which has presented over 25 programs in the New York metropolitan area in recent years.
