Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45

The fall concert centers on a masterwork by Brahms that reveals his deepest feelings about life and death, established him as a composer of major stature and linked two of the most important spheres of his lifelong musical endeavor, the vocal and the symphonic.
