Ein deutsches Requiem : op. 45 by Johannes Brahms( )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in German and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Deutsche Requiem von Brahms gehört in der Musikgeschichte zu den bekanntesten und umfangreichsten Requiem-Kompositionen. Die Texte sind der Luther-Bibel entnommen und setzen den Schwerpunkt auf den Trost der Lebenden für ihren Verlust und die Hoffnung auf Auferstehung. Marin Alsop gehört inzwischen nicht nur zu den bekanntesten NAXOS-Dirigentinnen sondern hat auch weltweit einen hervorragenden Ruf als Meisterin ihres Fachs. Diese Aufnahme gibt eindrucksvoll die heraus-ragende Zusammenarbeit Alsops mit dem Leipziger MDR Rundfunkchor- und Orchester wieder. Sopranistin Anna Lucia Richter ist Preisträgerin zahlreicher Wettbewerbe und hatte zuletzt großen Erfolg in Aufttritten u.a. mit dem Gürzenich Orchester Köln, dem WDR Rundfunkorchester, und dem HR Frankfurt. "Die Dirigentin, die heute das Baltimore Symphony Orchestra leitet, gab ihr Europa-Debüt 1993 beim Schleswig-Holstein-Festival. Seitdem ist sie hier immer wieder gern unterwegs, vorrangig mit den Werken zeitgenössischer amerikanischer und deutscher Komponisten. Dass ausgerechnet Johannes Brahms auf dem Programm des "Zauber der Musik" steht kommt nicht von ungefähr. Marin Alsop arbeitet gerade an einer Brahms Gesamteinspielung, die demnächst erscheinen wird. Für "Ein deutsches Requiem" hat sie sich für die Ensembles des MDR entschieden" (
