Reflect with Brahms and the Munich Philharmonic

Johannes Brahms composed »A German Requiem« primarily to comfort the living, with the aim of enthralling everyone who heard it. Although it uses words from the Holy Scriptures, the Requiem is non-liturgical. Conducted by  Paavo Järvi and accompanied by the Philharmonic Choir, the Munich Philharmonic will perform Brahms’ moving work twice in the Isarphilharmonie – on Wednesday, 13 April and Thursday, 14 April.

Good Friday tradition: Bach’s St Matthew Passion

Hansjörg Albrecht will conduct the Munich Bach Choir, Bach Orchestra and Münchner Knabenchor in the Isarphilharmonie at 2 PM on Good Friday, 15 April. At 7 PM, Philippe Herreweghe will lead the  Collegium Vocale Gent through the history of the Passion.
