Brahms created his profoundly moving, deeply spiritual A German Requiem in the wake of the deaths of his mother and Robert Schumann, a close father-figure. Soaring strings, transcendent voices, and powerful winds and brass create an “intimate expression of comfort” (The New York Times). Christoph von Dohnányi says it best: “The Requiem is one of the very greatest pieces Brahms ever wrote.”
