The LPO perform Brahms's classicA Requiem unlike any other, Brahms’s A German Requiem is a piece that carries the gift of spiritual comfort rather than the threat of impending judgment. Christoph Eschenbach conducts it here, after a performance of Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht, based on a controversial poem telling the story of a woman confessing her infidelity to her lover.
The moonlit forest location of this discussion contrives to give Schoenberg a backdrop upon which to base his harmonically rich, late-romantic style, one of the first to give him widespread attention.
