About

The famous German Requiem should not be allowed to overshadow the wide variety of choral music Brahms wrote throughout his career.

On this recording, Daniel Reuss and Cappella Amsterdam are our expert guides in a programme that takes in sacred a cappella motets by turns austere and resplendent, secular quartets with piano, and songs for 6-part unaccompanied chorus.

The crowning glory is a dramatic masterpiece for chorus and four-hand piano, the 'Song of Destiny' after Hölderlin.
