Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Brahms wrote his Requiem not to mourn the dead, but to give solace to the bereaved. Brahms himself lost a dear friend and mentor when Schumann died in 1856. The latter never heard his Cello Concerto performed. Their music comes to life in this soul-searching programme featuring Singapore-based Australian cellist Qin Li-Wei in Schumann’s Cello Concerto and the Singapore National Youth Orchestra playing side-by-side with the SSO. The Singapore Symphony Chorus and Youth Choir, Swedish soprano Susanna Andersson and Danish baritone Bo Skovhus lend their voices to Brahms’s Requiem.
