Guest conductor for the Milwaukee Symphony Robert Spano spoke with Bonnie North before the performance of Brahms’s German Requiem this weekend at the Marcus Center.
Johannes Brahms wrote his German Requiem as a memorial to his parents. The mid-19th Century piece is thought by many scholars to be the composer’s most personal work, and listeners frequently connect to its universal themes of loss, as well.
Tenor Michael Slattery speaks with Bonnie North about the upcoming Early Music Now concert, "Dowland in Dublin: An Evening of Lute Songs in an Irish Pub," with the Montreal-based early music ensemble La Nef.
English renaissance composer, singer and virtuoso lutenist John Dowland is famous today for his refined love songs and his fiendishly difficult solo lute pieces.
