Who can forget that scene in Amadeus when the genius Mozart lay on his deathbed, racing against time to complete his final opus - a mass for the dead. And just to make the whole episode even more eerie, the piece was commissioned by a mysterious stranger Mozart never met! Mozart left most of his Requiem complete, and enough sketches of the rest for his faithful pupil Sussmayr to imagine how the master would have finished this sublime work, one of the most achingly beautiful works ever written.
The program also features pianist Jorge Federico Osorio in Beethoven's timeless Concerto No. 1.
