Ars Musica concludes its 2013–2014 season on Saturday, June 7, 2014, with our 2014 Masterworks Concert: A German Requiem. Rare among works of this genre, it sets not the traditional Latin text of the requiem mass, but a selection of Biblical texts in the German language that Brahms himself chose for the purpose.

Magnificent yet personal, the Requiem’s rich harmonies and soaring melodies express the consolations of faith in the face of the great mystery of death. Brahms stated that he could just as easily have called his masterwork A Human Requiem (“Ein menschliches Requiem” ). It gives us a moving expression of comfort and hope for those who mourn, weaving classical forms with romantic harmonies.
