Newly appointed as the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor after just one appearance with the ensemble, Yannick Nézet-Séguin came to London in April 2009 to conduct Brahms’ profound A German Requiem. He presided over a performance of rare reflection and inevitability at the Royal Festival Hall that prompted an extraordinary silence from a capacity audience. In the young Canadian’s hands, Brahms’s uplifting choral masterpiece is marked by astutely judged tempi, delivered with the utmost care, captured live on this recording.

Reviews

‘A German Requiem that doesn’t rush and achieves a remarkable inwardness ... I found so many things to enjoy about this recording that I didn’t begrudge a single minute of the time spent to savour them.’
Peter Quantrill, Gramophone, August 2010
