Presentation

Among the sacred compositions that have found a central place in the repertoire, Fauré’s Requiem has a singular position. Far from the operatic or resounding Requiems composed by Mozart, Berlioz, Brahms or Verdi, this is an intimate score, with limited means, and great French charm. Of course, Fauré did not wish to outdo his glorious predecessors, but to be in tune with his time, when Parisian piety aimed to be within reach of the faithful and his composition is probably more in line with the recent Requiems of Liszt and Saint-Saens.

First performed at the Madeleine in 1888 for the first anniversary ceremony of the death of an architect, this work, which (apparently) plays on confidential tones, soon met with considerable success in concert. “It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death, someone called it a death lullaby. But this is how I feel death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration to happiness beyond, rather than as a painful crossing.”

Jean-Christophe Spinosi will deploy all his talent in this admirable composition.
