To close our season, we offer Mozart’s two great unfinished works of sacred music: The C Minor Mass (called the ‘Great Mass’) and the ‘Requiem in D Minor’. Although both pieces have been completed—by Mozart’s colleague and assistant Franz Xavier Süssmayr, in the case of the ‘Requiem’, and by modern scholars such as Robert Levin—our performance will essentially consist of the surviving torso of each piece. There can hardly be a more dramatic contrast between the monumental and spacious ‘Great Mass’, composed in 1782-83 as Mozart reached true maturity as a composer of sacred music, and the ‘Requiem’, the spare, incredibly succinct, almost ascetic creation of his last days upon the earth.
