About

Johannes Brahmsís consolatory Ein deutsches Requiem receives a fresh and considered interpretation from Daniel Reuss and the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century. This renowned orchestra took the decision - following the death, some years back, of Frans BrŁggen - to retain its founderís dynamic process of alternating concert tours with recordings. Dispensing with the need for having a principal conductor, the orchestra now works with a range of musicians according to the repertoire being performed.

Conductor Daniel Reuss is also the artistic director of the Cappella Amsterdam, the choir which has frequently been appearing alongside the orchestra in recent times. A well-received reading of the Beethoven Missa solemnis involving Reuss and the orchestra was issued by Glossa in 2017 and these musical forces have now turned their attention to Johannes Brahmsís pillar of religious music.

Taped in the Rotterdam De Doelen concert hall this new recording involves Carolyn Sampson (soprano) and Andrť Morsch (baritone) as its two soloists, in a version which attempts, as far as it is possible, to get close - in terms of tonal colours, interpretation and tempi - to Brahmsís original intentions.

This extraordinary work, here maintaining a sweeping and moving spirit for some 70 minutes, contains texts from Martin Lutherís German translation of the Bible and, it is thought, was inspired by the loss of both the composerís mother and also that of Robert Schumann.
