Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem
The Cleveland Orchestra
Franz Welser-Möst, Music Director
Hanna-Elisabeth Müller, soprano
Simon Keenlyside, baritone
Brahms’s German Requiem is a work of great intensity that speaks to people of all faiths and to believers and non-believers alike. In this concert recorded at the magnificent Baroque basilica of Saint Florian in Austria, The Cleveland Orchestra and its Music Director Franz Welser-Möst pare down all traces of bombast and, together with the Wiener Singverein and the soloists Hanna-Elisabeth Müller and Simon Keenlyside, they create a meditation on life and death, hailed by the press as “an event off the first order”.
