Berlioz Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall

Yesterday was the concert i´ve looked forward to for some months now. I´ve buyed the tickets two or three month ago for this event: Hector Berlioz´ Grand Messe (also known as Requiem). A choir of almost 700 voices. An full orchestra plus 4 remote orchestras. The full monty in regard of this piece of music. It was gigantic, especially when you take into consideration that all musicians were amateurs. I sat in the hall with goosebumps every few seconds. It was really really awesome. When you hear all musicans in the Lacrymosa at full scale, you know this was a gigantic event … Will write more about it this evening. It was really worth flying from Hamburg to London to hear the music.
