Serene and deeply moving, Brahms’s A German Requiem is a sublime fusion of the composer’s mastery of vocal and symphonic music. Set to texts from the Lutheran Bible, A German Requiem offers a message of consolation to the living rather than judgment of the dead. Soprano Diana Damrau and baritone Christian Gerhaher have won critical acclaim for their opera and song performances, making them ideally suited to Brahms’s highly expressive vocal writing.
