Requiem for Peace by Larry Nickel
Saturday, May 14, 2016, 8 p.m.
This Chicago premiere performance of Larry Nickel's stunning Requiem for Peace features full orchestra and soloists. Performances world-wide are garnering rave reviews. Exciting and dynamic music accompanies the poetry of war-torn nations from around the world, combining in a powerful and transcendent work calling for reconciliation. The composer joins us for an interview with WBEZ’s Worldview host, Jerome McDonnell.
Larry Nickel's work poignantly expresses a universal hope for peace: a major work on a grand scale – an all encompassing, all inclusive work, which demonstrates craft, genius, moral, and religious conviction, and a profound sense of musical integrity.
