Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem

The Chicago Chamber Choir will present Brahms’s iconic Ein Deutsches Requiem in a performance that honors tradition and explores new ways to hear this music. The elegant piano accompaniment, the subtlety of a chamber choir, and the concert setting all give a monumental work a personal and intimate feeling. The superb four-hand piano edition that replaces the orchestra was prepared by Brahms himself for the work’s premiere in London. In a further nod to this performance from 1871, a setting of I know that my redeemer liveth (by living composer Cecilia McDowall) takes the place of the fifth movement, echoing what Brahms himself would have heard.

The performance will feature pianists Talar Khosdeghian and Jeremy McElroy, and bass-baritone Dorian McCall.

Join the Chicago Chamber Choir as we explore new ways to hear and understand one of the most iconic and beautiful works of the 19th century.
