Johannes Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem, Op. 45
Requiem is the central work of Brahms' career. It not only contributed greatly to his popularity but established him as a composer of major stature by linking two of the most important spheres of his lifelong musical endeavor, the vocal and the symphonic. It is a sublime and moving work, in every way representing the quintessence of the 19th century Romanticism.
