BELLOR 898 Hildegard
SCHUMANN Overture, Scherzo, Finale
BRAHMS Ein deutsches Requiem (Alisa Jordheim, soprano; Will Liverman, baritone)

This powerful program began with the premiere of Las Vegas resident Jennifer Bellor’s 898 Hildegard, a piece for orchestra and chorus that intertwines excerpts from the medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen’s chants “O Vis Eternitatis” and “O Gloriosissimi Lux Vivens Angeli.”  Next, the orchestra performed Schumann’s profound and touching Overture, Scherzo and Finale followed by Brahms’ immensely popular German Requiem featuring the Las Vegas Master Singers, UNLV Concert Singers & Chamber Chorale, and soloists Alisa Jordheim and Will Liverman.

Recorded April 2017
