Brahms’ German Requiem

Coleen Cook, host of Classical Commute, and Jeff Koterba, host of Wednesday Morning Classics, are joined by hundreds of incredible high school choristers as they come together with the orchestra in performing a choral masterpiece conducted by Maestro Ernest Richardson.

Brahms’ German Requiem is a powerful and emotional choral masterpiece that is often regarded as one of the most significant works of the Romantic era. Along with professional singers, this gigantic performance includes your Omaha Symphony and over 300 high school choristers. The piece features exquisite orchestration, soaring vocal melodies, and intricate choral arrangements that are designed to evoke an astounding range of emotions. Composed in response to a deep personal loss, Brahms imbued the work with a sense of consolation and comfort that is both grand and intimate, evoking a sense of spiritual transcendence that is sure to leave a lasting impression.
