Johannes Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem Op. 45
Hanna-Elisabeth Müller, Simon Keenlyside, Wiener Singverein / The Cleveland Orchestra / Franz Welser-Möst
Brahms German Requiem is a work of great intensity that speaks to people of all faiths and to believers and non-believers alike. In this concert recorded at the magnificent Baroque basilica of Saint Florian in Austria, The Cleveland Orchestra and its Music Director Franz Welser-Möst pare down all traces of bombast and, together with the Wiener Singverein, soloists Hanna-Elisabeth Müller and Simon Keenlyside, they create a meditation on life and death, hailed by the press as ‘an event of the first order’.
