Noseda leads NSO forces in an intense and moving “War Requiem”

Washington Classical Review| November 30, 2018

“The Choral Arts Society of Washington, meticulously prepared by Scott Tucker, captured the many contrasting qualities of this music. Whispered phrases opened the piece over the brooding lines of the orchestra, with the predominant interval that runs through the score, an unsettled tritone, resolving at the two main climaxes of the evening by melting into a major chord.” – Charles T.
