From person to person

Johannes Brahms’s German Requiem is one of the most moving and tonally intense works from the Romantic era. When Brahms – who was born in Hamburg in 1833 – composed his requiem, he wasn’t really thinking about the salvation of the dead. He was primarily focused on providing solace to the bereaved. »I created my funeral music as a beatitude for mourners,« he explained. Words by humans for humans. He turned away completely from the church conventions that had dominated until then, and from integration into religious rites, and created a new form for the requiem as a humanist work.
