Performance Oklahoma on 88.7-1 http://kwgs.org en Canterbury Choral Society Performs Johannes Brahms' A German Requiem on Performance Oklahoma http://kwgs.org/post/canterbury-choral-society-performs-johannes-brahms-german-requiem-performance-oklahoma <p>The requiem of Johannes Brahms was first heard in public performance on Good Friday in 1868 in Bremen Cathedral, a highly personal and intimate portrait of the composer emerging in this sacred but non-liturgical piece which reshaped Brahms’ career. Though portions of the second movement were part of an earlier symphony begun in 1854 in response to Robert Schumann's attempted suicide, a more immediate impetus for the work as a whole was the death of Brahms' mother in 1865.
