  1. Selected Lieder - Robert Schumann
  2. Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) Op 45 - Johannes Brahms

Robert Schumann had been one of the young Brahms’s most fervent champions and he’s remembered alongside the composer’s mother in a heartfelt Requiem nearly a decade in the making. A deeply human response to mortality and the gnawing ache of loss, it sidesteps the traditional liturgical texts to set words of solace taken from Luther’s translation of the Bible – at its heart ‘How lovely are thy dwellings’, an intermezzo suffused with the sweetest repose.

Raising the curtain in this opening concert of our season, Associate Conductor of The Sixteen and member of I Fagiolini Eamonn Dougan sings some of Schumann’s exquisite Lieder, masterpieces in miniature, and an intimate preface to Brahms’s monumental memorialising homage.
