About the album

Gergiev’s first Brahms release on LSO Live, Symphonies Nos 1 & 2, Tragic Overture & Haydn Variations was awarded **** Performance ***** Recording by BBC Music Magazine. Here Gergiev presents the Brahms’ German Requiem, featuring soprano Sally Matthews and baritone Christopher Maltman.

In the dark colouring of his German Requiem, Brahms avoided the sorrow and terror of many great Requiems, favouring the pursuit of serenity and peace. Instead of providing a setting for the Latin mass, he chose text from the Lutheran Bible, to produce a work of universal rather than specifically religious appeal. 

This technically marvelous performance with excellent soloists, a superb choir and an outstanding orchestra lacks soul, Gergiev remaining just a technician here.
