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.

We begin the season by celebrating a birthday: the 150th anniversary of one of the most important symphonic choral works of all time, A German Requiem, by Johannes Brahms, a composer who features prominently in this year's programme. In this performance, our principal conductor will be accompanied by the Orfeó Català youth choir and two internationally renowned soloists who are back to collaborate with the OBC.
