Mozart: Requiem


EQ Alumni James Way, Tuuri Dede and Erik Rosenius will join Barbara and the Gothenburg Symphony for three performances of Mozart’s ‘Requiem’.

An otherworldly quality is woven throughout the evening. Mozart’s Requiem is a high-level drama. Principal guest conductor Barbara Hannigan makes the work her own.

Mozart’s Requiem was composed in 1791 and is surrounded by mythology. He composed it while battling death, but was unable to complete it. His students Franz Süssmayr and Joseph Eybler completed it on behalf of Mozart’s widow, Constanze, who was in desperate need of money for her family. 

The drama of death is portrayed through the music and has it all: a heavenly introduction on the basset horn, doomsday trumpets, a choir of angels. Tears, prayers and sorrow.
