Description
Brahms wrote a wide variety of choral music throughout this career. This programme takes in sacred a cappella motets, by turns austere and resplendent, secular quartets with piano and songs for 6-part unaccompanied chorus. The crowning glory is a dramatic masterpiece for chorus and four-hand piano, the 'Song of Destiny' after Hölderlin.

Reuss induces a sumptuous sound from his singers . . . The choral sound is never anything but immensely beautiful. GRAMOPHONE
