S. Cecilia orchestra conducted by Manfred Honeck, with Christiane Karg soprano and Matthias Goerne baritone. Brahms requiem, composed in 1868, was written for concert performance and not as a requiem mass. It was the first piece of music that confirmed Brahms, then 36, as heir to the German musical traditions of Bach, Handel, Mozart and Beethoven.
