A German Requiem by Johannes Brahms

David Schrader and Stephen Uhl, pianists
David Govertsen, bass soloist

“DAVID GOVERTSEN BRINGS HEIGHT AND A THRILLING BASS TO THE TITLE ROLE.”
--LAWRENCE BOMMER, CHICAGO STAGE STYLE

Bella Voce presents a rare opportunity to experience Brahms' A German Requiem as it originally reached England.  In a private residence in London in 1871, Brahms’ friend Julius Stockhausen presented the first British performance of the piece in an intimate alternative version for piano four hands that presented the text in English and did not include the Fifth Movement.  Our unique historically-informed re-creation of this performance will feature 24 voices and the virtuosity of David Schrader and Stephen Uhl, pianists, and David Govertsen, bass soloist. Conducted by Andrew Lewis.
