Informations

Enthralling, intimate, spacious, human. In his choral masterpiece Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem), Johannes Brahms crafts an exquisite hymn of consolation. 100 years and an ocean away from the Requiem’s debut, 26-year-old Michael Tilson Thomas traveled to a Vermont nursing home to meet the nonagenarian Carl Ruggles. Devoted to the discovery of America’s visionaries, MTT became a lifelong champion of Ruggles’s music, and transformed the San Francisco Symphony into a hotbed for the new American sound. Now, in his final season as Music Director, MTT doubles down on his commitment to side-by-side performances of visionaries past and present with this inspired pairing of Ruggles and Brahms.
