Florent Schmitt: Psalm 47

Kennedy Center Concert Hall @ 2700 F St NW, Washington, DC 20037

from til ,

Join The Choral Arts Society of Washington for a night of music by composers Faure , Schmitt and Boulanger.

In early 20th century Paris, the lives and music of Faure , Schmitt, and Boulanger were inextricably linked. Schmitt credited Faure as his greatest influence and Boulanger knew Faure as a family friend from childhood. Come explore the musical lineage of these three composers. Be transported by Faure's transcendent Requiem performed alongside Schmitt's triumphant and declamatory setting of Psalm 47 s O Clap Your Hands All Ye People! Shout to God with the voice of triumph! and Boulanger's exuberant Psalm 24 The earth is the Lord s, and all its fullness. Faure's influence on both composers can be heard in their psalm settings and paved the way for future generations of composers.
