Brave Mourning

Of Dvořák's musical inventiveness, his friend Johannes Brahms said, »The guy has more ideas than all of us. From his scraps, anyone else could pick the main themes.« And Dvořák did indeed have countless ideas throughout his life. But it took some time to succeed. Starting in 1878, he traveled extensively – the English in particular loved the Czech composer's music. Dvořák was very aware of the British choral tradition – and so he wrote the Requiem, which was premiered in Birmingham, a work that assigns an extraordinary role to the choir. With his Requiem, Dvořák also set himself a very special task: secularization increasingly determined spiritual life in the 19th century. The task now was to use the new musical possibilities to plumb and preserve the depths of the liturgical text, whose social and everyday presence was weakening. Compositional imagination was especially called upon to symbolize the message of death and the Last Judgment, of mourning, fear, hope, and consolation. Dvořák, the great melodist, was predestined for this task. With his Requiem, he succeeded in creating a work that captivates with its extremely intense tonal language.
