Mozart Requiem and Mass in C Minor
This is a rare opportunity to experience and enjoy Mozart’s two great masterpieces - the Requiem and the Mass in C Minor.
The Requiem was Mozart’s final work, composed in the short period before his death in December 1791. He was only 35. Though completed by others in his circle, and as with the Mass in C Minor, which he had mostly written by the mid 1780s, Mozart captures the drama and visceral emotion of the liturgy.
Though much scholarly debate continues as to who completed the pieces, there is no escaping the magnificence and virtuosic demands of both, such that generations of artists have been inspired by these great masterpieces ever since. Don’t miss the dramatic and hopeful beauty that this opportunity presents.
