Faure Requiem and Cantique de Jean Racine

Thu, Jun 18, 7 pm

Marble Hall

Organized by the Classical Revolution RVA and St. Edward Music Ministry, this free performance features singers and instrumentalists from across Richmond performing the music of Gabriel Faure (1845-1924), including Faure’s Requiem and the Cantique de Jean Racine, both frequently performed works of this great French composer. An excellent complement to Van Gogh, Manet, and Matisse: The Art of the Flower, these works illustrate the composer’s bold use of harmonies and exquisite sensitivity to melodic line, all within traditional musical forms.
