In Gabriel Fauré’s setting of the Requiem, the soul journeys from this life to the next on wings of most glorious song. Quiet and reflective, the Fauré Requiem eschews the fire and brimstone dramatics of many settings of the Mass for the Dead and instead offers music that soothes and consoles. With its comforting mood and ravishingly beautiful episodes, it is no surprise that this is one of the most beloved of all works for choir and orchestra.
Accompanying the Requiem is a new work by Australian composer Melody Eötvös. Commissioned by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, the new composition takes up the Shakespeare theme of the TSO’s 70th-anniversary season.
