Johannes Brahms, Alto Rhapsody
Aumna Iqbal, Mezzo Soprano
Claude Debussy, "Sirenes" from Nocturnes
Romantic choruses celebrate anniversaries for Brahms and Debussy. Set for male chorus and soloist, Brahms's "Alto Rhapsody" is a heart-felt plea for redemption for a man without love. Debussy's shimmering chorus depicts the Homeric legend of women's voices that soar over the waves to lure enraptured sailors to the rocks.
