The maestro Víctor Pablo Pérez will stand before the Symphony Orchestra to perform the “most serene Requiem of all musical literature”, composed by Gabriel Fauré. The orchestra will breathe life into this score across three stages, La Laguna, on Thursday 5 at 20:00 at the Cathedral; Santa Cruz, at the Auditorium at 19:30; and Güímar, on Saturday 7 at 20:00, at the San Pedro Church.

Considered his most celebrated piece, the "Requiem" by Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) does not follow the nineteenth-century tradition of the Mass for the Dead–as Berlioz and Verdi envisaged it– and backs away from all dramatic elements to approach death as a freeing experience. “Fauré, who was an exceptional writer of melodies, had just lost his parents when he composed his Requiem. It offers an optimistic and reflective view of the beyond through faith, love and hope”, Víctor Pablo Pérez stresses.

You can purchase your ticket to the performance at the Tenerife Auditorium, starting at €16, online.
