As a conductor and internationally acclaimed pianist, Christian Zacharias often performs both of these roles simultaneously – an impressive feat. Here he apperas in both roles as he leads the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and choir in music by Brahms. Brahms’ song Nänie is based on a text by Schiller, which many associate with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and An die Freude, “Ode to Joy”. Nänie means funeral song, but this is a beautiful song of praise, composed to to the artist and friend Anselm Feuerbach who had passed away. Brahms’ music has both warmth and dramatic nerve.
