VIDEO: The Cleveland Orchestra Chorus Rehearses Brahms's 'A German Requiem'


The performance took place on October 28, 2021.

The Cleveland Orchestra posted a video of their chorus warming up for their reunion last night after an unprecedented year apart. The Chorus performed Brahms's A German Requiem, accompanied by two pianos.

While the piece is technically not a requiem, Brahms called it a "human requiem", as he wrote it to comfort the living in the face of mortality.
