Brahms: German Requiem

7/6/2023; 71 minutes

The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus "Music of the Spheres" concert is conducted by Michael Gerdes, and features Johannes Brahms' colossal "German Requiem," which may have been inspired by the death of his mother in 1864, a loss which caused him profound grief. This large-scale work for orchestra, chorus, and soprano and baritone soloists is performed in German, a departure from the traditional Latin. Recorded on 3/19/2023. (#38949)
