The composer was scarcely 35 years old when he finished A German Requiem. Music historians generally agree that the shock Brahms experienced over the deaths of several people close to him played a crucial part in the creation of the work. He started composing the piece in 1856, around the time of the death of Robert Schumann, his former great advocate; the other tragedy was the death of his mother in 1865 - which is also woven into the piece's musical mood in the fifth movement.
