In speaking of his Sixth Symphony, Sibelius said that “it is, above all, a poem,” and told his publisher that the music is like “pure, cold water.” Audiences will sense that purity in the string-playing that opens the work. As the symphony progresses it gains in emotional intensity before slowly fading away.

Peace and calm of another kind prevail in Duruflé’s Requiem (featuring the Lay Family Concert Organ), which begins: “Eternal peace grant unto them, o Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon them.” It’s not a rafter-shaking Requiem, but one whose music speaks of consolation and acceptance.

This concert, featuring the Dallas Symphony Chorus, will be led by guest conductor Matthew Halls.
