Commissioned Programme Note

The story of Mozart’s Requiem is both fascinating and intriguing. In the last months of Mozart’s life, the composer was perhaps as inspirationally active as he had ever been, (two operas recently completed) despite his declining health. Yet the composition of the Requiem was something which weighed heavily on his mind and spirit and haunted him greatly. As he wrote in a letter to his father in 1787:
“as death when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the past few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key that unlocks the door to our true happiness. I never lie down at night without reflecting—young as I am—I may not live to see another day.” Read more
