Giuseppe Verdi: Requiem

Lux aeterna

This concert has already taken place!

Previous EventNext Event

Of all the settings of the Requiem, Verdi’s is probably the most powerful – and apart from the Mozart version, without a doubt the best known. Inspired by the death of his friend Rossini, the great opera composer created a non-denominational work whose dramatic input is in no way smaller than that of his opera scores. At the same time, the fear of death makes way for images of solace and hope, to which Christoph Schoener, with his choir and the extended Orchester St. Michaelis, give musical form.

Hauptkirche St. Michaelis

St. Michaelis Church is open to everyone as a place for prayer or for various musical and lecture events. Despite its size, the »Michel« is actually like a village church, and represents the spiritual centre of Hamburg’s Neustadt quarter. As the first building constructed in Hamburg after the Reformation, St. Michaelis became the youngest and biggest of the city’s five main churches in 1685.
