BRAHMS: A GERMAN REQUIEM

Luis Ernesto PEÑA LAGUNA - BRAHMS

Under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the OM and the Chœur Métropolitain will perform A German Requiem—a piece where the human voice reaches new heights. Grappling with universal themes while confronting death with serenity and wonder, Brahms celebrates life on earth and beyond.

In contrast with Latin requiems replete with God’s wrath and repentance, Brahms’s work is a calming ode to the human spirit. The innovative and dramatic composition’s German libretto evokes feelings of hopefulness, sung by a choir and soloists in the style of an oratorio. A German Requiem is positively one of a kind.
