WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Schumann Requiem

Brahms: Serenade No 2 
Schumann: Requiem in D-flat, Op 148

Richard Egarr: conductor; Rowan Pierce: soprano; Daniela Lehner: mezzo soprano: Thomas Hobbs: tenor; Ashley Riches: bass baritone; SCO Chorus; Gregory Batsleer: chorus director

Young Brahms and Schumann at the end of his life share more sunlight than shadows in these two rarely-heard gems scored for modest and unusual forces (there are no violins in Brahms’ Serenade). Brahms dedicated his second and shorter serenade to Schumann’s widow Clara in 1859, three years after the master’s death; the older composer seems reconciled with mortality in a surprisingly untroubled farewell. Richard Egarr brings with him a distinguished quartet of soloists to do justice to masterly simplicity.
