May 12, 2017 at St James’s Church, Piccadilly in London.


A special performance of Brahms’ choral masterpiece, interspersed with poetry and texts exploring life and beyond, read by Victoria Newlyn.

Sonoro – Victoria Newlyn – Michael Higgins and Ian Tindale, piano
Neil Ferris, conductor

We are delighted to be returning to St James’s, Piccadilly for a special performance of the 1871 London version of Brahms ‘Ein Deutsches Requiem’, arranged by the composer for piano duet.

Sonoro will be joined by renowned actor and performer Victoria Newlyn who will intersperse texts and poetry tied to the theme ‘Life and beyond’ between the movements of the Requiem and will feature works by writers such as Thomas Hardy, John Donne, William Shakespeare and Khalil Gibran among others.

By incorporating these readings into our performance of Brahms’s optimistic Requiem, we aim to give you a deeper insight into the reasons why Brahms himself chose not to set the traditional Requiem Mass. The texts have been chosen to enhance the music, add to the atmosphere, and create a wider, more fulfilling experience.

Address: 197 Piccadilly, London
Brahms – Ein Deutsches Requiem
