As temporary crowning point of the Brahms Cycle with The Cleveland Orchestra under the baton of its principal conductor Franz Welser-Möst, Clasart Classic recorded the composer’s “Ein Deutsches Requiem”. This monument of choral music is a work of great intensity that speaks to people of all faiths and to believers and non-believers alike. In this concert recorded at the magnificent Baroque basilica of Saint Florian in Austria, the Cleveland Orchestra and Franz Welser-Möst pare down all traces of bombast wherever emotions could easily run out of control, and together with the Wiener Singverein and the soloists Hanna-Elisabeth Müller and Simon Keenlyside, they create a meditation on life and death, hailed by the press as “an event of the first order”.
