Johannes Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem
Erich Leinsdorf, New England Conservatory Chorus, Boston Symphony Orchestra
I am not a great fan of Brahms (about whom Benjamin Britten was notoriously sniffy!)
But I’ve always liked this, my first-ever version of the German Requiem. And, pace Britten, I can’t hear anything awful in the work, but rather something rather noble and wonderful.
