Brahms’s German Requiem Venue: Charleston Gaillard Center Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes The exhilarating force of a full stage As described in the Spoleto guidebook: Ein Deutsches Requiem was, for composer Johannes Brahms, a deeply personal work; he gleaned the title from a manuscript belonging to Robert Schumann, a father figure of sorts, and wrote the work after his own mother’s death in 1865. Natalia Pavlova, who returns to Charleston after her dazzling American debut in the 2017 Festival production of Eugene Onegin, sings the revered soprano solos, including the heartfelt final movement: “I will comfort you as one whom his own mother comforteth.” Hear the power and rapturous beauty of Brahms’s masterwork performed by Westminster Choir, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra.
