Szymanowski’s Stabat Mater is derived from poet Józef Jankowski’s translation of the medieval poem about the grieving mother of Christ, which struck a deeply personal chord with Szymanowski following the months he spent consoling his sister after the death of her daughter. Brahms’ German Requiem forms a joint memorial to both his mother and his friend and mentor Robert Schumann. Brahms purposefully chose Biblical texts which utter words of consolation, displaying a very human response to the inevitability and sorrow of death.

Change of soloist

Gerald Finley is suffering from a throat infection and has had to withdraw from the LSO concerts on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 March.

Christopher Maltman will now sing the baritone part in Brahms' German Requiem, and Kostas Smoriginas will sing the baritone part in Szymanowski's Stabat Mater.

We are very grateful to both artists for agreeing to step in at extremely short notice.


Tickets: £10 £15 £19.50 £27 £36
