The Los Angeles Master Chorale captures the shared human experience with a pairing of Brahms' sublime Ein Deutsches Requiem and the West Coast premiere of The World in Flower, Peter Lieberson's lyrical and moving message of tolerance written in memory of his wife and muse, famed mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, with whom the Chorale performed Adam's El Niño in Los Angeles and New York.

This compelling and heartfelt program, conducted by Music Director Grant Gershon, is presented in a special matinee performance on Saturday, January 26, 2013, 2 pm, repeating on Sunday, January 27, 2013, 7 pm. Gershon and KUSC's Alan Chapman participate in ListenUp!, the pre-concert talk two hours prior to each performance. The soloists for the Lieberson piece are Kelley O'Connor, mezzo-soprano, and Brian Mulligan, baritone. Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem features soloists Yulia Van Doren, soprano, and Mulligan.

"Both works are truly universal, embracing and reflecting humanity in profound ways," notes Gershon.

Brahms' magnum opus, Ein Deutsches Requiem, has been called "a requiem for the living," giving hope to those in mourning and compassion and comfort for all of mankind. The Chorale's last presentation of the transcendent work was in 2006, which the Los Angeles Times proclaimed, "a finely realized performance... that filled the sold-out hall with cathedral sounds and crescendos that could be felt as well as heard."
