Introduction/abstract

Tonkunstler Orchestra · Christina Landshamer · Tareq Nazmi · Konzertchor Niederösterreich · Ivor Bolton

BRAHMS

Music gives strength. This power is explicitly inscribed in Brahms's «German Requiem». Bucking tradition, the young composer did not intend his requiem to be a mass for the dead; instead, he wrote a work for the living that would provide comfort for those in mourning. Transcending religious denomination, the «German Requiem» secured Brahms's fame and is one of his most loved works today. In Grafenegg it is in the hands of the distinguished British conductor Ivor Bolton, with Christina Landshamer, Tareq Nazmi and the Konzertchor Niederösterreich contributing the human voice, to which Brahms assigned a major role in providing comfort and consolation.
