19 March 2017 - Brahms' Requiem at St Saviour's Church
The Eastbourne Symphony Orchestra, with the ESO Chorus and the Eastbournian Society Chorus, gave a memorable performance of Brahms' Requiem at St Saviour's Church, Eastbourne, on Sunday 19 March.
Former College Director of Music Graham Jones conducted, the leader was Lisa Wigmore and the two soloists were baritone Nicholas Morris and soprano Máire Flavin.
Local reviewer Robin Gregory commented: 'Throughout, the orchestra showed what a fine full symphony orchestra Eastbourne is lucky to have. The strings’ lustre, the woodwind’s plangent tone, and the penetration of the brass were all evident in Brahms’ choral masterpiece, written relatively early in his composing life. The 70-strong choir, too, sang with a confidence born of fine rehearsal and long experience.'
More details about the ESO can be found at their website www.eso.org.uk.
