Brahms Requiem & Liebeslieder Walzer, Op 52

St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square

7.30pm

Soprano: Claire Seaton
Baritone: Gareth Brynmor John.
Pianists: Francis Pott & Simon Phillips

Brahms’ Requiem is probably familiar to most singers and is a splendid rich work, sacred but not liturgical, as it includes many psalm settings as well as the familiar requiem mass parts. Brahms originally scored it for orchestral accompaniment but we are performing it in his rather wonderful arrangement for two pianists at one piano. This arrangement was one he worked up from an 1866 piano version for Clara Schumann. It was also the version which was first presented in England in 1871 except for the 6th movement which he hadn’t written at that point.

The Liebeslieder Waltzes also involve two pianists at one piano and are a collection of love songs. The lyrics come from folk songs and love poems. Some think that Brahms’ motivation for the songs was his frustrated love for Clara Schumann, thus providing another link across the two works.
