Brahms Requiem and Liebeslieder-Walze

St Lawrence Church, Lawrence Street, York. YO1 9TL

Brahms – Requiem (Op.45) and Liebeslieder-Walze (Op.52)

Ben Horden, Nicky Losseff piano duet

Wendy Goodson soprano, Jason Darnell baritone

Peter Seymour  conductor

 

Inspired by the death of his mother, Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem, Op.45) is one of the great choral masterpieces. Its tender and consoling music traces a journey of grief which is far from other grand concert or Latin requiem settings and was described by Brahms as ‘a human requiem’. We present Brahms’ own arrangement for piano duet in a version which allows a greater intimacy and precision in place of the fuller orchestral setting. Alongside the Requiem we perform Brahms’ Liebeslieder Walzer (Love-song waltzes, Op.52) which explore themes of love and sorrow in a kaleidoscopic cycle of dance and melodic charm.
