Masterworks V: The Fauré Requiem

March 2, 2024 @ 7:30 pm CST

Sarah Shafer and Quad City native Nathaniel Sullivan join us in presenting beloved works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Gabriel Fauré. QCSO Principal Trumpet Matthew Baker joins Shafer for the Aria “Rejoice unto God in All Lands!,” followed by Principal Cello Hannah Holman performing the iconic Prelude from the First Cello Suite. Feel the yearning of the famous “Air on a G-String” from Bach’s Third Orchestral Suite before the Augustana Oratorio Society & Choral Artists join the ensemble and soloists for selections from the St. Matthew Passion. The first half closes with the virtuosic flourishes of Bach’s Second Brandenburg Concerto. Experience the peaceful serenity of life after death in Fauré’s soaring Requiem. Composed after the loss of his parents, Fauré balances profound sorrow and longing with light, hope, and the exultation of heaven.
