On the eve of All Saints’ Day, the Philharmonic presents a concert whose atmosphere well corresponds with the November feast. Peteris Vasks, a Latvian, ranks among the most famous contemporary composers. A special place in his work is occupied by broadly defined spirituality. As the composer himself says: “My intention is to provide food for the soul and this is what I preach in my works. Most people today no longer possess beliefs, love, and ideals. The spiritual dimension has been lost.” Vasks’ Dona nobis pacem (Latin for “grant us peace”) is a calm, serious, and meditative prayer for peace dominated by rather dark and austere sounds. Contrary to what might be expected, more serenity and optimism may be found in Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem, which is imbued with trust in eternal peace. Indeed, Fauré saw death “as a joyful deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness beyond the grave, rather than as a painful experience.” As the composer explained: “Perhaps my instinct led me to stray from the established path after all those years accompanying funerals!” Fauré’s Requiem, filled with subtle and delicate, almost heavenly sounds, was composed in the years 1887–1890.
