Performance of Ein deutsches Requiem

There is no conductor in the world choral singers are more thrilled to sing for than Helmuth Rilling.

This esteemed German artist brings to the podium a lifetime of passionate, painstaking study of Brahms' gorgeous German Requiem. Brahms, writing in the days after his mother's death, filled this work with both serene beauty and earthy, riveting choruses. The concert begins with Rilling's special lecture-demonstration with the Orchestra and Chorale, illuminating the subtleties and life-affirming messages in Brahms' masterwork.
