The Ainur Choir will perform this friday the Fauré’s Requiem in Lanzarote
The Ainur Choir continues its tour of the islands with the interpretation of the ‘Requiem of Fauré’, one of the top works of the religious repertoire, within the framework of the 36th International Festival of Music of the Canary Islands (FIMC). Accompanied by a group of musicians from the Las Palmas Symphony Orchestra, this weekend they arrive in Lanzarote after having crowded their first two concerts in Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
This proposal constitutes a splendid opportunity to hear it, in its 1893 version, within the framework for which this type of work was conceived: the churches. It will be on Friday 24 at the Convent of Santo Domingo de Teguise, in Lanzarote at 8.30 pm and freely accessible to the public.
This tour is carried out with José Brito and Mariola Rodríguez to the musical and choral direction, respectively, and with the intervention of the young Canarian soloists Tania Lorenzo (soprano) and Fernando Campero (baritone). They will take this “different” oratory to the Canarian public, as Fauré himself described. In fact, it is an innovative work because, among other things, the French musician modified the traditional liturgical order, omitting the Sequence and adding a celestial ending. But before ‘Requiem’, the choir will sing sacred pieces from the 16th century to the present.
