Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem
Dvorak Slavonic Dances (Op.46)
Worcester Cathedral, 7:30pm
A memorable, stirring choral and orchestral concert at Worcester Cathedral that promises to be one of the highlights of the Midlands' spring music calendar.
One of the Romantic period’s leading composers, Johannes Brahms wrote arguably his greatest choral composition, Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem), as a comfort for those who mourn and who feel the pain of the death of others.
He began writing the work in 1865, the same year he experienced the painful loss of his mother, and viewed it as a humanist piece rather than overtly Christian. This passionate, large-scale work for chorus, soprano and baritone soloists and orchestra creates a tapestry of musical solace, peace and hope – perhaps the most comforting, humane requiem ever written.
