Brahms conducted the first major performance of the German Requiem in Bremen Cathedral in April 1868. The occasion -- attended by many distinguished musicians, among them Clara Schumann -- provided the 34-year-old composer with his first great public success. Scored for mixed chorus, solo voices, and full orchestra, the Requiem reflects Brahms' virtuosic grasp of nineteenth-century vocal technique as well as the polyphonic vocal traditions of the previous three centuries.
