Drawing in reaction to Fauré’s Requiem

I recently saw Mozart and Fauré’s Requiem at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland, Vermont. Both pieces were excellently performed by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra.

Mozart’s Requiem was, needless to say, very emotional. I found the Fauré piece to be much lighter, celebratory and of course gorgeous. I made this drawing on a small notepad while listening to it. There is a certain openness to this image, with the interlocking parts constantly being reborn and branching out. Encouraging imagery for some tumultuous times.

For those who like classical music, I highly recommend getting a copy of Fauré’s Requiem.
