Karajan conducts Brahms’s “German Requiem” in Salzburg

We now show a live recording of Brahms’s Deutsches Requiem from the 1978 Salzburg Festival with Herbert von Karajan conducting and Gundula Janowitz and José van Dam as the soloists. A work full of consolation and warmth, Karajan’s expansive interpretation highlights its grand arcs. In addition to the Berliner Philharmoniker, the performers include the Wiener Singverein which was once conducted by Brahms himself.
