Why See San Francisco Symphony - Berlioz's Requiem?
Prepare for majesty and drama with the tremendous Requiem (Messe des morts), the grand work after the Latin Requiem Mass by Hector Berlioz. Written to commemorate the death of soldiers during the Revolution of July 1830 in Paris, Berlioz threw himself into creating a large-scale epic, adding passion and theatricality into this gravely set piece.
Featuring over 400 musicians and the chorus as led by Charles Dutoit, this powerful composition will fill you with wonder coupled with the beauty of the Davies Symphony Hall at full capacity.
