Info
With his interceding composition Das Lesen der Schrift [The Reading of the Script], the German composer and musicologist Wolfgang Rihm will offer a “deciphering process” for Johannes Brahms’s German Requiem. Whilst Brahms, through a selective reading of the Bible, created this touching and possibly most famous choral work in the history of music, Rihm inserted a total of four set pieces in between the individual movements of the Requiem in a targeted manner. The aim was “the gradual becoming aware of a textual context convoluted with symbols”. The Wiener Symphoniker will interpret the German Requiem including Rihm’s decipherment under the direction of the German conductor Sebastian Weigle. On the vocal side, the Vienna Singakademie Choir are joined by the Swedish soprano Maria Bengtsson and the Canadian baritone Gerald Finley.
