Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s final composition, Requiem, was finished after his death by his student Franz Xaver Süssmayr. According to his wife, Constanze Mozart, the ailing composer had come to believe he was writing the piece, initially commissioned by a German count, to be played at his own funeral — and indeed some sections were. Requiem was later performed at the funerals and commemorative services of Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Haydn, and Frédéric Chopin. 

Centuries later in 1960, “scraps of paper” containing Mozart’s unrealized ideas were discovered, prompting new versions of the Requiem.

Join us for Robert Levin's scholarly completion of this celebrated and emotionally stirring choral masterpiece, featuring Downtown Voices with The Choir of Trinity Wall Street.
