Known as a triumph within the choral canon, Brahms’ Requiem is an intensely beautiful masterpiece with an underlying theme of comfort.

Perfect for those who couldn’t get out for Valentine’s Day proper, the concert includes Bartók’s Violin Concerto, a piece composed for an unrequited love that laid untouched for 50 years. This tribute to a failed romance is masterfully interpreted by Concertmaster Diana Cohen.

Join the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra for Brahms Requiem February 17 and 18, 2017 at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE). A pre-concert chat it slated for 7:05pm on both days.
