I agree with George Barnard Shaw, "Brahms` Requiem is a work that everyone
should hear only once". For me, it is essence of turgidity. There are many
beautiful passages but they all sound like they are in molasses. The work
never moves, and the only time it portends to do so, there is an endless
pedal point. I am a Brahms fan except for this work.

I understand the comments regarding lack of melody. Brahms is not known for
his melodic ability, rather for the “organic growth” in his music. The
Spanish virtuoso Pablo de Sarasate allegedly refused to play Brahms violin
concerto because he didn’t care “to stand on the platform, violin in hand,
to listen to the oboe playing the only real tune in the whole work.”

HOWEVER, having said that, in my opinion this is the greatest mass ever
written, save only the B Minor. I even prefer it over the beautiful Mozart
masses. It’s a towering work, a masterpiece. George Bernard Shaw is
entitled to his opinion, however, I have seen numerous live productions of
this work, and listen to it frequently I have three different versions :).

לא, אין שום סיבה להאמין בקיומו של בורא לעולם. למעשה אף אחד עוד לא הסביר לי
מה פירוש המושג 'בורא' או בריאה. להסביר את היקום? זה כבר דורש עבודת נמלים,
דורות על גבי דורות של מחקר מדעי שחושף כל פעם עוד חתיכה מהפאזל בידיעה ברורה
שאף פעם לא נדע הכול. אבל זה דורש חריצות, גם מעשית וגם מחשבתית. הרבה יותר
פשוט להגיד 'יש אלוהים' ובזה לסגור עניין.

Brahms’ knowledge of scripture was extensive. This incredible text is based
Solely on Old and New Testaments (in English)
Matthew 5:4...
BLESSED ARE THEY THAT MOURN; for they shall be comforted

Psalm 126:5,6...
They that sow seeds in tears shall reap with joy. He that goeth forth and
weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bring his harvest with him!!!

1 Peter 1:24...
FOR ALL FLESH IS AS THE GRASS, and the glory of man, as the flower of
grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away!

James 5:7...
So wait patiently, brothers and sisters, for the coming of the Lord. You
see how the farmer must wait for the precious harvest of the land, being
patient while it is watered by the rains of spring and fall

1 Peter 1:25...
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.!!!

Isaiah 35:10...
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and
everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and
sorrow and sighing shall flee away !!!

Psalm 39:4-7...
TEACH ME OH LORD, how brief my time on earth will be, Remind me that my
days are numbered, and that my life is fleeing away.
My life is no longer than the width of my hand. An entire lifetime is just
a moment to you. Human existence is but a breath.
We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. We
heap up wealth for someone else to spend.
And so Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you !!!

Wisdom of Solomon 3:1...
But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no
torment touch them !!!

Psalm 84:1,2,4...
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart
and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee.

John 16:22...
AND NOW YE THEREFORE HAVE SORROW; but I will see you again, and your heart
shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

Ecclesiastes 51:27...
Ye see how for a little while I labor and toil, yet have I found much rest.

Isaiah 66:13...
As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.

Hebrews 13:14...
FOR HERE HAVE WE NO CONTINUING CITY, but we seek one to come.

1 Corinthians 15:51,52,54,55...
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet
shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be
. . . then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is
swallowed up in victory !!!
O death, where is they sting? O grave, where is they victory !!!

Revelation 4:11...
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou
hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Revelation 14:13...
BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHICH DIE IN THE LORD from henceforth: Yea, saith the
Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow

I used to be a great trumpet player back in middle school, but I decided to
quit when I reached high school. When I watch the live orchestra it brings
me back and I think about what my life would've been like had I utilized
that potential. There's a sort of beauty in playing in a large orchestra,
contributing to the elegant music that emotionally charges any audience.
Bravo UC davis bravo.

Comments on 1 st movement:
Young, sweet, natural sounding choral voices....fortunately not using the
dreaded straight tone that has ruined many a performance of 19th century
choral works lately. Reasonable German accents for a California choir....

Conductor fixed a little bit of an early entrance issue very nicely. Lovely
interpretation, delicate and sensitive. Orchestra intonation and timbre is
quite good, especially for college players. Nothing to complain about here.
Bravi tutti.
Looking forward to hearing the rest of it when I have time!

God is there whether we believe in it, accept it or not. One who has
doubts should only open ones eyes and look around. There's a magnificent
cosmic system who created all this. It is working and flowing harmonically
every day and every minute. It has nothing to do with religion. Religion
is the making of human beings. You can keep it or ignore it. It's essence
is just a set of rules to keep you more focused, more close to yourself and
to the cosmic system. All the rest is additions of human needs of ego.
The pure essence of religion is to make you a better person. All the rest
is just not that.

Life is better and easier if we stick to the cosmic rules, learn them and
understand how we can flow with them. This is called living with God.

And really, it has nothing to do with religion.

Definition of Requiem
1) A Roman Catholic Mass
a. A mass for a deceased person.
b. A musical composition for such a mass.

2. A hymn, composition, or service for the dead.

Why pray or give a service for the dead if there is no God Sachmo ?

You are clueless. Your comments are contrived through your ignorant
perceptions, to support your self serving ideology.

It's arrogance.

Even though we cannot prove God doesn't exist, we can't prove he does
exist, eitther. It is, indeed, a matter of faith. Therefore, I am neither
an atheïst nor a Christian (or follower of any other religion). It's true
that many composers of the Baroque days were inspired by their faith, but
only because of their historic surroundings.

In my opinion I think the decision to not title this Johannes Brahms: A
German Requiem illustrates the devastating effect that the 68 year
defamation campaign against the German people has had on Americans
especially. Obviously this is just speculation and some would say a comment
like this is pure paranoia, so to each his own. Also, if you want the
definitive version I would recommend checking this out.

Einstein's god was the god of Spinoza, of many scientists and philosophers,
a transcendent idea of the cosmos, of the mystery beyond the grandeour of
nature, "a superior reasoning power" (his own words), and he stated several
times that he wanted nothing to do with the god of the Bible. What are YOU
talking about...?

Do you call the human sacrifice of the Aztecs and the slaughter of
Christians by Pagan Rome "religious"? If so, I'm sure you are right that
more people have suffered more from "religion" than WWI or WWII. I myself
call anti-theism a religious belief, as there is no scientific evidence for
it. There is vast and ancient philosophical and scientific evidence for
God, though, and you are calling your ancestors fools by denying His
