Choeur Métropolitain

Voices and colours

Schubert-Clara Schumann-Brahms-Bruckner

The warmth of the human voice joins forces with unexpected colours in this concert. Schubert’s Nachtgesang im Walde, for men’s chorus and four horns, takes us into the forest for a nightly but luminous walk to celebrate nature. Clara Schumann’s Three Mixed Voices Choruses are beyond charming, letting the talent of this extraordinary musician shine through. Brahms’s enchanting Four Songs are written for women’s chorus, two horns and harp, an unusual yet is typically romantic accompaniment. In the pure tradition of ancient church music, Bruckner’s Mass No. 2 is full of references for the masters of the past, while remaining faithful to the composer’s personal style.
