Mozart: Requiem & Revelations

Mozart’s Requiem is legendary in more ways than one. Even setting aside the popular fictions, there’s something deeply moving in the idea of a composer striving on his deathbed to finish his last creation. Which is why conductor Brett Weymark wants us to hear it with fresh ears, interweaving the Requiem with music from throughout Mozart’s life – musical gems that hint at what was to come. Some you may recognise, some oddly familiar, others will sound intriguingly new. Together they amplify the beauty and drama of Mozart’s ultimate masterwork in a kind of musical revelation.

And in Dolor ultimæ melodiæ (Grief of the last song), Australian composer Jessica Wells creates a meditation on the “Amen” of the Lacrimosa – picking up with a contemporary voice from the point where Mozart left off. Hear the 140 voices of SPC’s Symphony Chorus fill the Sydney Town Hall.
