On Saturday 9th November 2019 ExeVox Chamber Choir will perform the Brahms’ Requiem ‘for four hands’ under the direction of Peter Adcock and with Alex West and Paul Morgan on the piano.

Brahms’ German Requiem is one of the great choral masterpieces of all time. Brahms himself made a piano transcription of the orchestral parts of his magnificent Requiem for use by smaller groups. The arrangement for two players allows a degree of intimacy, precision and contrapuntal clarity that cannot be achieved in the orchestral version. In 1871 this version was given its English première conducted by Brahms’s friend Julius Stockhausen.

The concert will be in St Michael’s Church, Mount Dinham, Exeter, EX4 4EB at 7.30 p.m. It will feature other works by Brahms and by Bruckner. The concert will be in support of Hospiscare.

Tickets are £12.00 in advance, available through Ticket Source (www.ticketsource.co.uk); or from Exeter Tourist Information on 01392 665700; or £14.00 on the door.
