Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Mozart's last work, the 'Requiem Mass in D minor K626', receives a strong performance from the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus under Mozart specialist Sir Colin Davis in a classic recording made in 1984. Popular legend has it that a mysterious stranger commissioned the 'Requiem' fuelling Mozart's obsession that the piece was his own Mass. However the probable truth is much less dark, that one Count Walsegg, who had a well-known penchant for commissioning works which he attempted to pass off as his own, commissioned it upon the death of his wife. Mozart died in 1791, before completing the piece. It was later completed by one of his students, Franz Sussmayr, at the request of Mozart's wife Constanze.
