Brams German Requiem with a Twist (and Natalie Dessay)
This performance of the German Requiem has four interpolated pieces by Rihm which
actually work well. I have divided the work into tracks so you can bypass the
Rihm if you like, though I would recommend giving it a try.
I also left some interesting commentary at the end which tells you more about
the Rihm if you speak French.
