Mozart’s unfinished Requiem turned out to be his own. This unfailingly gripping work moves from the dark clouds of fate to the piercing light of optimism – a last bid for positivity in the tragic life of a genius cut off in his prime. After his equally sublime late Clarinet Concerto – played by outstanding Spanish clarinettist Laura Ruiz Ferreres – Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra are joined by one of the finest mixed-voice college choirs in the land for Mozart’s last musical will and testament. Join us for the most iconic Requiem ever written in the unmatched surroundings of the Sheldonian Theatre.
