Handel and Haydn Society: Mozart Requiem

  • Symphony Hall 301 Massachusetts Avenue Boston, MA, 02115 United States (map)

Mozart’s sublime final composition, left unfinished at the time of his death, is universally acknowledged as one of the most powerful and moving masterpieces ever composed. In the hands of Harry Christophers and the musicians of H+H, it will be an experience to remember. The Requiem has an otherworldly beauty intimating that—having already glimpsed the beyond—Mozart is on the threshold of eternity. Harry Christophers conducts this final concert of the season that also includes Mozart’s stately Masonic Funeral Music, a tour de force motet by Bach, and Allegri’s polyphonic masterpiece. This music will reverberate in your soul long after the last note has faded to silence.

Mozart: Masonic Funeral Music
Allegri: Miserere mei, Deus
Bach: Singet dem Herrn
Mozart: Requiem
Harry Christophers, Conducting
