Program Book

Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the program book to get all the details.

Profound, intimate and stunningly beautiful – Brahms’ epic choral piece defied the usual thoughts of mortality and instead stands as a testament to the human spirit itself.

Brahms often privately referred to the piece as “a human requiem.” This performance brings together great musical forces to realise the work’s full power including Danish opera star, Bo Skovhus, soprano Emma Matthews and the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs.

With its deeply moving message of love and hope, this performance is an uplifting meditation on life and light that speaks to us all.
