Faure Requiem - Concert Hall, QPAC - Tickets
Overview

Alondra de la Parra, Music Director of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra will be on maternity leave in April 2018 and thus unable to conduct the Fauré Requiem concert on 7 April 2018. We are excited to announce that the replacement conductor for this beautiful concert will be the masterful Swedish choral conductor Stefan Parkman, Chief Conductor of the WDR Rundfunkchor Köln.

Conductor Stefan Parkman
Soprano Morgan England-Jones
Baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes
The Australian Voices

Stravinsky Funeral Song, Op.5
Britten Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, Op.33a
Whitacre Cloudburst
Fauré Requiem, Op.48

Celebrate music in all its glory with works where musicianship is the star and where voices take pride of place. Be swept away by Stravinsky’s recently rediscovered score of the processional Funeral Song and Britten’s Four Sea Interludes. Then, be uplifted by Whitacre’s cinematic Cloudburst, where an eight-part choir, piano and percussion channel a terrifying thunderstorm, before Fauré’s sublime Requiem entices listeners into a beautiful ethereal sanctuary. By comparison with the choral blockbusters of Verdi, Brahms and Berlioz, Fauré’s setting is gentle. Ironically, this subtlety is its strength.
