Spotlight on Rehearsal: "A German Requiem" with Yannick Nézet-Séguin (2015)
The German Requiem by Brahms has been with Yannick Nézet-Séguin for half of his life. BR-KLASSIK met the Canadian conductor at one of his rehearsals and talked to him about musical balm for the soul, his love for the Baroque period and the challenges of life both in the here and now as well as in the hereafter. Nézet-Séguin is a well-received guest on the podium of the BR’s choir and symphonic orchestra. He conducted the “German Requiem” on June 25 and 26, 2015 in Munich’s Herkulessaal.
