GMChorale has become one of New England’s finest and most engaging choruses since its founding in 1977 as The Greater Middletown Chorale. Today, the GMChorale is celebrated for its innovative symphonic choral presentations. Under the leadership of Joseph D'Eugenio, performs a wide range of choral repertoire, from beloved masterworks to newly commissioned pieces.  As the GMChorale enters its fifth decade, the organization is broadening its mission and the scope of its offerings to bring the power and beauty of choral music to people and communities across Connecticut. It is a core principle of the Chorale that the power of music is should be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Joseph D'Eugenio (Artistic Director / Executive Director) has been bringing music to life across Southern New England for three decades as a conductor, artistic director, executive director, educator, pianist, organist, and coach for vocalists and conductors. He frequently conducts productions of major choral-orchestral masterworks, most often with GMChorale, New Haven Symphony Orchestra, Hartford Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestra New England. Performances include the oratorios of Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, and Carissimi; the masses of Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, and Bruckner; the requiems of Mozart, Duruflé, Brahms, Fauré, and Cherubini; newly-commissioned works; and music of all genres, styles, and periods. D’Eugenio has been Artistic Director of GMChorale since 1999. Under his leadership, the chorale has become known as one of New England’s finest choruses, awarded and celebrated for its creative choral presentations, commissioned works, and dynamic collaborations. In 2009, D’Eugenio was named Conductor of the Year by the Connecticut Chapter of ACDA. In demand as a guest conductor, clinician, and collaborative pianist, D’Eugenio has led various workshops and festivals, and has conducted choral groups in high schools, colleges, and universities across Connecticut, including as visiting instructor at Wesleyan University in Middletown.

Program Notes

Schicksalslied (“Song of Destiny”) ~ Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)

 

The 17-minute Schicksalslied (“Song of Destiny”) is often referred to as “Brahms’ Little Requiem.” This piece explores questions of despair, fate, and the transcendent power of hope, and thereby provides thematic continuity with the April 2023 concert. Sung in German, the text utilizes a 3-verse poem from Friedrich Hölderlin’s “Hyperion’s Song of Destiny.” The first two verses reveal a heavenly realm of serenity, repose, balmy breezes, and divine light. The third verse, though, delivers a reality check as it decries the drudgery, suffering and sorrow that are the earthly fate of mankind. The poem ends on this gloomy note. But not so with Brahms’ composition!

We can think of the composition in three parts. The first begins with a long orchestral passage, swelling with radiance and longing. It introduces musical themes that are later echoed by the chorus as they muse about strolling pathways of light amid the sounds of sacred strings, utterly free of fate (schicksallos).  The orchestra extends this dreamy scenario for eight more measures before making a complete about-face to introduce the stormy second part. Audience members lulled into a state of tranquility during the first part now find themselves in the presence of an orchestra and chorus railing furiously against the forces of fate.

Brahms struggled for several years to bring this piece to a satisfying, hope-filled conclusion. Since he could not convey hope through the chorus without using text that had never appeared in HIt introduces musical themes that are later echoed by the chorus as they muse about strolling pathways of light amid the sounds of sacred strings, utterly free of fate (schicksallos). lderlin’s poem, he decided ultimately to let the music do the talking. In a restful postlude, the orchestra recapitulates the introductory measures, although now transposed from E-flat to C major.

Mass in E-flat Major, No. 6 ~ Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

 

Schubert composed his hour-long Mass in E-flat Major mere months before his tragic death at age 31. A year passed before the first two performances of the work; it then languished in near obscurity for the following three decades. Thanks largely to the efforts of Brahms, the Mass was finally published in 1865, making it all the more fitting that it is paired with a Brahms masterwork today. This brilliant choral symphony is acknowledged as the finest, most mature of Schubert’s six Mass settings. A crossover between the Classical and Early Romantic periods, it also bears echoes of the Baroque Era and the Renaissance.

The Kyrie, the plaintive plea for mercy that re-appears in other movements as miserere nobis, makes extraordinary demands on the performers in regard to dynamics as they infuse the slim text with ever-evolving beauty and nuance over the span of 164 measures. After the tranquil final measure of the Kyrie, the chorus erupts into the Gloria a capella. In this movement we are introduced to the recurring theme of sacrifice (Agnus Dei, Lamb of God). Schubert scores this theme in foreboding tones, but balances it with the sweetness of the miserere nobis. The Gloria concludes with Cum Sancto Spiritu, a breathtaking fugue which, at 205 measures, is nearly half the length of the entire movement.

 

In the Credo, three of our stellar soloists perform one of Schubert’s most exquisite melodies, Et incarnatus est. The tenderness of these passages is contrasted with the darkness of Crucifixus etiam pro nobis, sung by the chorus. The Credo ends with another triumphant fugue, Et vitam venturi saeculi.

The Sanctus begins piano and, in incremental steps, builds to a deafening fortississimo. A short but lively Osanna fugue ends the movement. In the Benedictus, a solo quartet introduces the text before handing it off to the chorus for further development. This pattern is repeated several times before an abrupt change in tempo heralds the return of the delightful Osanna fugue.

The final movement, the Agnus Dei, builds on the themes of sacrifice and mercy that were developed in the Kyrie and Gloria. The oppressively heavy mood of each Agnus Dei is accompanied by the pleading tones of each miserere nobis. But all is not lost. As chorus, quartet and orchestra combine efforts in the Dona nobis pacem, they lead all to a place of gentle, affirming serenity.

We trust that you will be deeply moved by the opportunity to experience this seldom performed masterwork.
