“German Requiem” is one of the most complex works of Brahms. From the moment it was premiered, until today, it attracted the attention of the audience because of the power of the sound and the textual message it sends, as well as the composer’s poetics, which is quite specific in relation to the other works of that composer. “Requiem” also carries a touch of mysticism, because the author has never publicly revealed what inspired him to write it and to whom he dedicated the work. It is assumed that the loss of his mother and Robert Schumann, a great friend, and mentor, were the reasons for him to write it, especially since such thinking is encouraged by the fact that he often called Schumann his spiritual father.
