Music written for the Requiem Mass was usually performed in Latin. But Brahms broke the mould with this colossal, controversial German-language masterpiece.
Not only did it speak directly to the people, it also approached death from a more humanistic perspective. It’s less a lament for the dead than music offering consolation to those left behind.
The OAE welcomes back Marin Alsop, who conducted A German Requiem with the Orchestra to critical acclaim at the BBC Proms in 2013.
