As we slowly resurface from the collective suffering wrought by COVID-19, we must take time to mourn the terrible toll of those we’ve lost, while also striving to find meaning and light in the darkness.
Fauré wrote his requiem to be a musical consolation, a deeply human response to the suffering of death and the pain of grief, that paints a picture of the paradise that awaits, and the merciful peace of eternal rest.
We close our season with a large-scale, outdoor, candlelit performance of this piercingly beautiful work, performed by the extraordinary singers of Cantori New York, conducted by Mark Shapiro.
Join us in remembrance of those we’ve lost, and in hope of a better world to come.
Gabriel Fauré: Requiem in D minor
Cantori New York
Mark Shapiro, Director
Praised by The New York Times for its "spirit of exploration" and "virtuosity and assurance," Cantori imaginatively interweaves historical hidden gems with audacious premieres to create eclectic and dynamic musical experiences. A four-time winner of the ASCAP/Chorus America Adventurous Programming Award -- more than any other chorus in the Eastern United States -- Cantori has performed at all five major halls at Lincoln Center, as well as Zankel Hall, Le Poisson Rouge and elsewhere. Cantori New York has a varied discography including, among others, The Metamorphoses by British composer Paul Crabtree and Echoes and Shadows, featuring works by Tom Cipullo and Chris DeBlasio. Our recording of Le vin herbé by Swiss composer Frank Martin was an Opera News Editor’s Choice.
