New Jersey Symphony: Faure’s Requiem


Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin Written during the horrors World War I, Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin is a bright reflection on lives lost during the war, with each movement dedicated to a friend who passed. The composer draws on the woodwind section – particularly the oboe – to tell these stories. Walker Lilacs George Walker – a longtime Montclair resident -was among the greatest composers to call the Garden State home, and in 1996, he became the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize in Music. It was this passionate work for soprano and orchestra that garnered him that grand distinction. Fauré Requiem This divine choral-orchestral masterpiece focuses Fauré’s view on the acceptance of a peaceful death. Lionel Bringuier conductor Montclair State University Chorale | Heather J. Buchanan, director New Jersey Symphony
