Johannes Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem is a work of profound reflection, presenting the composer‘s most personal beliefs in a timeless form, overcoming all boundaries of religions and confessions and nations.
This 'Requiem' is not based on the familiar text of the Catholic funeral mass, but is instead sensitively and knowledgably assembled from text from the Old and New Testaments by Brahms himself. Indeed, it was not his intention to pattern his Requiem after the Latin mass for the dead, nor to proclaim what he felt were false hopes for resurrection. Instead, Ein deutsches Requiem is a work of consolation for those left behind. This aspect is particularly emphasized in Helmuth Rilling’s moving interpretation.
Donna Brown (soprano) and Gilles Cachemaille (baritone) are the outstanding vocal soloists, delivering well-profiled performances that are perfectly integrated into the overall balance of sound. Together with his regular collaborators, the Gächinger Kantorei Stuttgart and the Bach-Collegium Stuttgart, Rilling delivers a performance full of gravitas that effectively reconciles the themes of death and mourning with a transcendent sense of spiritual consolation with a sense of immediacy seldom encountered in other performances.
