  |  Johannes Brahms - Ein Deutsches Requiem  |  

Production: The Utrechtse Oratorium Vereniging (UOV) (Utrecht Oratorio Society) performs Ein Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms in the so-called London version, with piano à quatre mains. In this intimate composition, the text and the choir are prominent and the harmonies recognizable. Brahms composed this work not as a traditional Requiem Mass, a prayer for the souls of the deceased but as comforting music for all who mourn loved ones and are concerned about the finite nature of their existence. This song of consolation is sung a few days before All Souls' Day.
