    Programme

    To celebrate 25 years of conductor Wim Vluggen, this summer Universiteitskoor Maastricht will sing Brahms’ masterpiece ‘Ein Deutsches Requiem’. Although at first sight an unusual pick for such a celebration, this beautiful requiem is filled with cheerful, light, and bombastic pieces. This gives both the choir as well as the conductor a great challenge and chance to overwhelm the audience.

    About the requiem

    ‘Ein Deutsches Requiem’ is Johannes Brahms’ longest composition (between 65 and 80 minutes). It was composed between 1865 and 1868 and comprises seven movements. Atypical for a requiem, this beautiful piece focusses on living (rather than dying), beginning with the text “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

    The piece was originally composed for orchestra, and later adapted for two piano’s, which amplifies the voice dynamics. We will perform this adapted version. We are joined by bariton and soprano soloists.
