Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem


Saturday 30 October 2021  |  7.30pm
Bath Abbey

Described by Clara Schumann as “An immense piece that takes hold of one’s whole being like very little else”, Brahms’s German Requiem combines profound seriousness with magic, poetry, drama and romanticism, to deeply moving effect. As a Lutheran rather than a Roman Catholic, Brahms wrote the oratorio in German and called it “a human requiem”, weaving together themes of consolation for the living, as well as hope for the life to come. In 1871, two years after completing the orchestral version, Brahms produced an intimate chamber version for piano and four hands as a work in its own right. It is this exquisite so-called ‘London version’ that Bath Bach Choir will perform at its autumn concert, bringing the music’s eternal message of love and joy to inspire us all with hope for the future.

The concert will last 70 minutes with no interval.
