Brahms Requiem
Sat Jan 29 | 3pm



Dr. Joshua Harper returns to Arizona Philharmonic’s podium with his acclaimed chorus, Quartz Ensemble  - presenting a new. intimate, and exciting rendition of Johannes Brahms’ acclaimed Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem). The clarity of Quartz Ensemble’s 12 voices is beautifully balanced with Arizona Philharmonic’s double quintet plus timpani chamber orchestra. The orchestra size lies between Brahms’ original two accompaniment options of full orchestra or two pianos. The chamber orchestra maintains beautiful instrumental color while allowing acoustic space for the precision of a small, professional choir. Choral Journal calls this recent arrangement of the Brahms Requiem by Joachim Linckelmann a “new, fresh interpretation of this masterwork.” You will hear the Requiem with a whole new appreciation. Arizona Philharmonic also presents Ligeti’s charming  Old Hungarian Ballroom Dances , which Ligeti carefully composed while underneath Stalin’s firm, anti-modernism mandates. If you have never heard Ligeti’s humorous, playful, and slightly defiant side, this piece is a must-listen.


Arizona Philharmonic Brass
Sun Feb 27 | 3pm



The Arizona Philharmonic Brass Quintet makes its debut performance with bold and beautiful music of Bach, Gabrieli, Gershwin, Arnold, and (… wait for it …) Peter Schickele (aka P.D.Q. Bach). Experience this brilliant, and a little bit humorous, concert by AZ Phil’s principal brass players, led by principal trumpet player, Cindy Gould.
