  5. Requiem Mass in D minor K 626 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Fresh from their triumphant collaboration in April 2017, Tredici and the Orpheus Sinfonia join forces once again to perform two towering masterpieces of the choral repertoire: the Magnificat with which JS Bach proclaimed his arrival in Leipzig to a stunned congregation in 1723, and Mozart's Requiem, famously left uncompleted on his death at the age of thirty-five and thereafter endlessly subjected to speculation, mythology and pure dramatic invention.

The Requiem is set in context by Mozart's early Regina Coeli K 276, the Magnificat by the Third of the Concertos (1st movement) with which Bach had tried, and signally failed, to secure a position wiht the Margrave of Brandenburg two years previously; while to complete the programme there's a rare opportunity to hear Beethoven's short but exquisite Elegischer Gesang, composed in 1814.
