IN PARADISUM:Requiems by Gabriel Fauré and Raymond Torres-Santos

With the Capital District Youth Chorale and Orchestra Pro Musica
Gabriel Fauré started a trend when he composed his beloved Requiem. Diverting from the dramatic exploitation of the “day of wrath” by his predecessors, Fauré saw “death as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience.” This same spirit is echoed by celebrated Puerto Rican composer Raymond Torres-Santos in his unique Requiem. His love for film music is apparent in this melodious work, and this performance will be a New York State premiere. While Fauré’s lullaby-like approach to paradise is sweet and tender, Torres-Santos takes you to paradise in an exhilarating explosion of joy.

SATURDAY, MAY 2 • 7:30pm

Premium Seats – $35 • Regular Seats – $25 • Students – $10
