The concert will open with Schubert’s dramatic and emotional Symphony No. 4 in C minor, D 417 (Tragic). This piece takes the listener on a journey through the full range of emotions. While it is at times full of effervescence and vitality, at other moments it portrays haunting anguish and melancholy. Overshadowed by Beethoven during his lifetime, Schubert’s symphonies are now revered for the surprising harmonic turns and thrilling musical moments.
The concert continues with Mozart’s Requiem in D minor, K. 626, with the Winston-Salem Symphony Chorus and the guest singers joining the Symphony. Considered a masterpiece and one of the strongest expressions of faith that can be found in art, Mozart’s Requiem moves audiences with its transcendent power and beauty.
