Saturday, December 8, 2018
Mills Concert Hall , Mosse Humanities Building
Maurice Duruflé (1902-1986) was a French composer, organist, and teacher. The Requiem (Opus 9) was first performed in 1948 and is his most well-known and substantial work. It is constructed of melodies from Gregorian chant and text settings that highlight, as Duruflé himself put it: “the anguish of man faced with the mystery of his final end.” With Beverly Taylor, conductor.
