Brahms Requiem with Heras-Casado

In his sublime Ein deutsches Requiem, Brahms created a work that evokes the contemplative spirit of Bach, though far from lacking any drama. The mournful march “Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras” (“For all flesh is as grass”) and the grand sixth-movement fugue carry tremendous emotional weight. Ein deutsches Requiem also offers hope and consolation, as evidenced in the beautiful soprano aria “Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit” ("Ye now have sorrow") and the quiet closing chorus “Selig sind die Toten, die in dem Herrn sterben” ("Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord").
