‘Sine Nomine’ Perform Requiem At St. Martin’s
(1.20) This Friday the Sine Nomine choral ensemble will be performing Ein Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms, the 1866 edition with chamber choir and four hand piano.
Johannes Brahms transcribed an alternative edition of his beloved Ein Deutsches Requiem with accompaniment of four hands on one piano. This more intimate and transparent version was premiered in London in 1871, and will be performed by Sine Nomine choral ensemble with soloists Philip Lima, baritone and Jennifer Caraluzzi, soprano, and pianists Patrice Newman and I-Ying Lin.
Admission $20. (Remember, you are getting four hands, so that’s only $5/hand.) Senior and student discounts available at the door with I.D.
Seen here is a window to St. Martin who as a Roman soldier famously cut his cloak in half to share with a freezing beggar. This makes him a favorite with Episcopalians — no sense in giving him the whole cloak, then I’d be cold. Martin is also the patron saint of alcoholics and equestrians. So, quite a good fit really.
