Brahms’ German Requiem, thought to be written in memory of Brahms’ mother, has an air of consolation and repose whilst his Cello Sonata in E Minor is full of contrasts: a profoundly soulful first movement and an apparently “Classical” minuet & trio give way to a powerful, muscular and passionate contrapuntal finale. The German Requiem will be performed in a version for choir and piano duet, based on Brahms’ own arrangement of the work.
