BRAHMS
Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45 (68')

MAXIM EMELYANYCHEV – CONDUCTOR
SOPHIE BEVAN – SOPRANO
HANNO MÜLLER-BRACHMANN – BASS-BARITONE 

SCO CHORUS
GREGORY BATSLEER – CONDUCTOR

Brahms was an agnostic and a humanist, so his deeply moving Requiem is a work for the people, intended to console and offer hope to those suffering loss.

With its resplendent choral writing and its rich, autumnal colours, it’s a masterpiece that offers comfort and inspiration to people of all faiths, and of none.

Maxim Emelyanychev is joined by two eminent vocal soloists and the exceptional SCO Chorus for what’s been described as Brahms’ most awe-inspiring creation.

Pre-Concert Insight in Edinburgh and Glasgow: 6.45pm
Gregory Batsleer (SCO Chorus Director) and Steve King (SCO Viola) will introduce this wonderful work.
