David Zinman concludes his Festival concerts at the helm of the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich with one of Brahms’s most magnificent creations: the German Requiem.
A profoundly humanistic work that offers a vision of comfort and hope rather than grief and anger, its superbly crafted music and soaring vocal melodies encompass drama, serenity and intense expressivity.
Joining the Edinburgh Festival Chorus for this visionary piece are the celebrated Swiss soprano Rachel Harnisch, noted for her powerful yet intimate performances, and Austrian baritone Florian Bösch, whose intense interpretations have earnt him worldwide acclaim.
