Tugan Sokhiev conducts Berlioz’s Requiem: Grand Death Mass with Bryan Hymel (tenor)

Under the baton of its musical director, Tugan Sokhiev, and accompanied by tenor, Bryan Hymel,  the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse performs a majestic work: the Great Death Mass by Berlioz.

Berlioz’s Requiem was commissioned by the Interior Minister of the period, Adrien de Gasparin, to whom the composer dedicated the piece. The work was presented in 1837 with more than 400 musicians and singers on stage, conducted by François-Antoine Habeneck.

 

 

The great Hector Berlioz has long been one of the favorite composers of the Orchestre National du Capitole and it is an exceptional opportunity to hear his Requiem, a gigantic work of unprecedented proportions that pushes back both orchestral and sound boundaries. The huge work in ten movements is sung by American tenor, Bryan Hymel, rising star of the lyrical platform, and the Basque Orféon Donostiarra choir, under the direction of its choir master, José Antonio Sainz Alfaro.
