"...some of the loveliest singing this demanding music has received." MusicWeb

Arthaus presents the gorgeously sonorous Ein Deutsches Requiem, recorded at the Musikverein, Vienna in April 1997 with a host of stellar names including the ubiquitous Bryn Terfel, man of the moment, and with a relaxed Claudio Abbado conducting, clearly enjoying the performance.

The Requiem, held by some to have been written in memory of Schumann, by others in memory of the composer's mother, is scored for soprano and baritone soli, SATB chorus and orchestra and musically marks a turning point in compositional technique by which Brahms influenced the entire world of music. The way he arranged the seven movements and composed individual passages demonstrates his creative thinking, free from musical as well as Christian dogma.

"Is Bryn Terfel touched with genius? ... Caruso must have had the same unaffected charisma, the same communicative generosity. If it isn't genius, it's a quality very like it - the stuff of legend."
