Brisbane Chorale presents Johannes Brahms – A German Requiem

Concert or Performance

7 Nov 2020 to 8 Nov 2020 Once Only Event

Beloved that word springs to mind when I think of the Brahms Requiem especially now, it feels very much like music for our time.

Brahms Requiem is a work of consolation and universality. The opening words, “Selig sind die da Leid tragen – Blessed are those who mourn”, acknowledge the pain of those left behind, but give hope of healing and comfort. The music is radiant, introspective, confronting, cathartic it doesn’t promise a “happy ending”, but offers peace.

Doing a major concert at a time when it is anything but easy to be doing such a thing is an act of hope in the sustenance of our beloved choral art form. Gathering for weekly rehearsals is an act of coming together, affirming the powerful sustaining power of singing. Offering this music to be heard live in Brisbane is Brisbane Chorale’s way of involving others in this joy, and offering emotional connection at a time when that has never been more important.
