Program notes

In February 2021, nearly a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, this breathtakingly beautiful performance of Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) served both as a poignant tribute to lives lost and a reminder of the importance of art during difficult times. From the back of the stage, Maestro Gianandrea Noseda leads the impeccable Philharmonia Zurich through Brahms’s masterpiece, while the spectacular singers of the Zürich Opera Chorus and Zürcher Sing-Akademie spread out to fill every section of the sumptuous Zürich Opera House with the sounds of one of the most sublime requiem masses ever composed. Soprano Lydia Teuscher is “all that one could wish for,” baritone Konstantin Shushakov “magnificent” and “commanding,” in the challenging solo roles (Seen and Heard International).
