Johannes Brahms’s German Requiem is given a performance which reveals a quite different dimension to this monumental work. Iain Farrington’s arrangement—the orchestral forces distilled down to an instrumental octet inspired by the composer’s own piano reduction—is a perfect match for the glorious young voices of Yale Schola Cantorum. This chamber version highlights the sense of intimacy and personal expression inherent in the work.
