BARBER Knoxville, Summer of 1915
BRAHMS A German Requiem

Marin Alsop closes the season with a concert of innocence and remembrance. In Knoxville, Summer of 1915, the words of poet-author James Agee recall an idyllic summer evening, delicately set to Barber's folk-like music. Brahms' choral masterpiece, A German Requiem, was begun as a loving farewell to his mother, concluding as a grandly moving musical commentary on the fleeting beauty of human life.

Attend a FREE pre-concert lecture with WETA’s David Ginder before every Classical Thursday event at Strathmore. Music Notes LIVE! begins at 7 pm. No reservations are required but capacity is limited, so patrons will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
