Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
SDG is happy to present last recording issued from the 2008 Brahms: Roots and Memories tour, in which John Eliot Gardiner and his ensembles explored the music of Johannes Brahms.

Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem is presented along pieces by Heinrich Schutz (1585-1672) which might have inspired its composition, giving the listener a new insight into the composer's mind and music making.

Deeply moving, profound, and powerful, the Requiem is central to our understanding of Brahms' compositional personality and inner spiritual life. Behind its dramatic gestures and 19th century grandeur, it reveals Brahms' obsessions with folk-songs and the music of the past. The libretto, assembled by Brahms himself based on the Lutheran Bible, makes it a definitive personal statement of his position in matters of religion.

The booklet includes a note by composer Hugh Wood, explaining how the pieces relate to each other and giving a moving account of Brahms as a composer and as a man.

"Another triumph for Sir John Eliot Gardiner... The symphony surges forward, newly illuminated, wonderfully alive, dappled with the unfiltered colours only possible with period instruments" The Times

"There has never previously been a recording which so vividly magics the work out of its own private hinterland for our delectation and awe." Gramophone
