Evening Masterwork: Requiem by Maurice Durufle

Requiem by Maurice Durufle

Evening Masterwork for September 11, 2019 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

French composer Maurice Durufle published only thirteen works in his career, which spanned most of the 20th century. One of these works was his Requiem, a work that the composer had originally set out to be an organ work based on the Mass for the Dead.  Written in memoriam of the composer’s father, the work is inspired by the works of Ravel, Debussy, and especially Faure.
