An unforgettable symbolyc homage to death an resurrection

A German Requiem by Johannes Brahms is the most famous mass for the dead in the Lutheran tradition. It premiered on Good Friday in 1868 in Bremen Cathedral prior to its definitive version in the Leipzig Gewandhaus. The work is particularly significant for orchestra and chorus, in addition to the passages scored for baritone and soprano. A memorable libretto, with the participation of two magnificent soloists, José Antonio López and Mojca Erdmann, and the “dynamic forces” of the Liceu, the Chorus and Orchestra, skillfully conducted by maestro Josep Pons.
