Brahms, A German Requiem

14.02.2018 | 02:40

A German Requiem Op. 45 by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), conducted by Claudio Abbado. With Barbara Bonney (soprano), Bryn Terfel (baritone), the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir and the Berliner Philharmoniker. Concert in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Johannes Brahms' death in the Musikverein Wien. In a radical departure from the traditional Catholic Requiem Mass, Brahms compiled his text from Martin Luther's German translation of the Bible. The words convey feelings of hope and consolation, and are more concerned with comforting the living than praying for the soul of the departed.
