Brahms – Ein Deutsches Requiem (sung in German)
Mendelssohn – Zweistimmige Lieder
Mendelssohn – Sinfonia no 10 in B minor Conducted by Steven Kings With The Bristol Ensemble
Brahms the humanist, not a believer in any obvious sense , made his own very personal selection of Biblical texts for his German Requiem, reflecting above all the comfort that can be offered to the bereaved amidst the uncertainties and transience of human life. His music is by turns mysterious, terrifying, consoling, triumphant but always beautifully composed and richly Romantic in tone.
