Program

Brahms consolidated his reputation as a composer with this requiem that purposely avoids the canonical structure of masses for the dead, opting instead to seek the more human aspects of death, with a highly expressive text. The programme opens with a new work by Barcelona-born composer Ferran Cruixent, following last year's success with Deus ex machina, in which he incorporated the sound of the mobile phones of orchestra members.
