Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897):
Ein Deutsches Requiem, op. 45.
Arrangement for soloists, choir and piano four hands by Phillip Moll
Brahms’s requiem in Phillip Moll’s version became an amazing experience for the audience at their first Danish performance in Holmen Church last year. The translucent and elegant version of the work is certainly worth repeating – the beginning of a new Easter tradition for the Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir…
In 2017, the Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir received permission from Rundfunkchor Berlin to use their new arrangement, written for choir and piano four hands. It has also been performed earlier with this crew – including by Brahms himself – but in recent years especially, there has been an increasing interest in exploring the requiem in a tender chamber music version where Brahms’s amazing work is revealed with great power by the choir’s voices
Ein Deutsches Requiem is performed with the two outstanding Danish pianists Rikke Sandberg and Tanja Zapolski, and with soloists at the highest international level.
