Savor the richness of Brahms in this profound performance that captures the full shimmering spectrum of human emotion. It’s a perfect showcase for our chorus—almost as if this deeply spiritual music were written just for them. With celebrated period instrument conductor Bernard Labadie at the helm, you’ll take part in the rare thrill of hearing these pieces played on the instruments Brahms knew best, surrounding yourself with the healing sounds that brought him solace following his mother’s death. This majestic offering matches ferocity with tenderness, boldness with beauty, promising goosebumps from start to finish.
