Johannes Brahms’ German Requiem @ Dartmouth

On Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 p.m. in Spaulding Auditorium, the Handel Society of Dartmouth College will perform Johannes Brahms’s choral masterwork, Ein Deutsches Requiem.

In his “German Requiem,” Brahms turned personal loss—the death of his mother—into a masterpiece. Based not on the traditional Latin mass for the dead but on German Biblical verses, which Brahms himself chose, Ein Deutsches Requiem is not a requiem for the souls of the dead, but a consolation for those who mourn.

The work has been a favorite since its premiere and continues to receive regular performances. Along with our auditioned chorus of 90 voices, we’ll have a full orchestra and guest soloists from among the finest young classical singers today. Come enjoy this masterpiece and support America’s oldest town-gown chorus!
