Brahms: A German Requiem

Johannes Brahms

Tuesday 3rd May 2022 - Chapelle Corneille/Auditorium de Normandie

The first drafts of Brahms’ requiem were composed around 1954, when he was facing up to the insanity, then the death of his friend Robert Schumann: the finishing touches were made in 1865, as he was getting over the death of his mother. As he conducts his Ensemble Aedes and the historic instruments of Les Siècles, Mathieu Romano endeavours to convey the deeply personal feeling and the profound humanity underlying this, the greatest requiem of the Romantic Period.
