JENNIFER BELLOR 898 Hildegard - Premiere
SCHUMANN Overture, Scherzo and Finale, Opus 52
BRAHMS A German Requiem, Opus 45
EVOCATIVE, POETIC AND LIFE-AFFIRMING, this powerful program begins with the premiere of Las Vegas resident Jennifer Bellor’s 898 Hildegard, a piece for orchestra and chorus that intertwines excerpts from the medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen’s chants “O Vis Eternitatis” and “O Gloriosissimi Lux Vivens Angeli.” Robert Schumann attained the elusive union of music and poetry, an ultimate goal of the Romantic era artist. His music abounds with quick mood changes, tumult, profound statements, and touching delicacy, all of which is found in the Overture, Scherzo and Finale. Championed by Schumann, Johannes Brahms’ immensely popular German Requiem is a consoling and comforting piece, providing solace to all that hear and perform it. The Las Vegas Master Singers, UNLV Concert Singers & Chamber Chorale, along with soloists Alisa Jordheim and Will Liverman join forces with your symphony orchestra to deliver a stirring performance.
