    Berlioz Requiem at Symphony Hall

    The School of Music at the College of Fine Arts (CFA) at Boston University will perform Hector Berlioz’s Grande Messe des Mortes, Op. 5, a piece known for its complex, large-scale, and often grandiose instrumentation and for its ties to Boston’s Symphony Hall.

    Recorded notably in Boston’s Symphony Hall in 1959, Berlioz’s Requiem is scored for a very large orchestra with offstage brass sections and choral groups placed throughout the venue.

    “This is truly a 3-D experience,” explains Benjamín Juárez, Dean of Boston University College of Fine Arts. “The orchestra and choral sections are to the front, to the sides, to the back, creating an enveloping sound. Not only is it an incredible experience for BU student musicians, it’s a visual and listening opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.”
