San Francisco Symphony Dutoit conducts Fauré’s Requiem: An Open Rehearsal

Two of the 20th century’s great spiritual masterpieces stand alongside one of the 19th 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, commemorate 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.

Katharine Hanrahan Open Rehearsal is a working rehearsal. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductor’s discretion.
