Event details


In December 1791 Mozart died, leaving five of the fourteen sections of the Requiem unwritten or incomplete. This new completion envisions a bridge existing between 1791 and the 'New Classicism' proposed during the 1920s, and in no small way indebted to Mozart, by Busoni and others. On that bridge, between Mozart and Busoni stand the figures of Schubert, Beethoven, Bruckner, Schoenberg.

Conducted by Michael Finnissy, with Matthew Brook (bass-baritone) as Mozart.

Specially-assembled choir and orchestra: guest principals, University of Southampton Music Department staff and students, and members of Southampton University Symphony Orchestra.

A second performance will take place on Saturday 26 November at the Church of St Michael & All Angels, Victoria Road, Brighton (please see separate event for details).
