San Francisco Symphony Dutoit conducts Fauré’s Requiem

Two of the twentieth century’s great spiritual masterpieces stand alongside one of the nineteenth century’s most beautiful in this profound program featuring the magnificent San Francisco Symphony Chorus and popular guest conductor Charles Dutoit. Poulenc’s Litanies, mysterious and moving, commemorates the composer’s religious epiphany after making a pilgrimage. Stravinsky’s Symphony, with its setting of three Psalms, combines an atmosphere of ritual with rich writing for chorus and orchestra, and Fauré’s beloved Requiem, serene and hopeful, concludes the program.

Concert: Approx. 1h 30, includes intermission.
