Durham Choral Society: Mozart Requiem & Vespers
Sat 20 May 2017 , 7:30 pm| £18
Requiem K.626 (compl. Franz Süssmayr)
Left unfinished at his death, Mozart’s Requiem was commissioned anonymously, giving rise to various legends, particularly the myth explored in Peter Schaffer’s play “Amadeus” that Mozart’s rival Salieri was behind it. The truth is more mundane, but the profound emotion of the music itself continues to move us.
The divine Solemn Vespers also mark an end-point in Mozart’s life as they were the last work he composed for Salzburg Cathedral.
Tickets: £18, £10; concessions £16 and £8; under 18s half price
