Fantasy concerts - Jo Briddock, 2nd Alto

Jo's fantasty concert have to include Brahms Requiem. Jo says "The musical forces would preferably be the BBC Philharmonic conducted by Ewa Strusinska - one of only a handful of leading female conductors. As one of the least ‘religious’ choral requiems it appeals because it is a work of human consolation for those left behind and has less of the fire and brimstone of judgement day featured in some other requiems.

"Although I love singing Verdi’s Requiem too! As a singer I love it because it has just about everything including; well-known sections, hidden treasures, quiet calm moments and a monumental fugue that shouldn’t work but somehow just does! As an alto, I love it because there are great lines and harmonies for us to sing. And as a music lover, the sumptuous orchestration has me hooked from the opening bars.”
