CHORUS, SOLOISTS AND ORCHESTRA – CONDUCTOR LIZ GREEN
The Requiem in D minor, K. 626, was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Vienna in late 1791, but it was unfinished at his death on 5th December the same year. A version dated 1792 and completed by Mozart’s pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayr was delivered to Count Franz von Walsegg, who commissioned the work. We shall perform the most famous parts, used in the 1984 Milos Forman film Amadeus.
WIND ENSEMBLE- CONDUCTOR PHIL MONTERO
The Serenade No. 10 for Winds in B-flat major, K. 361/370a, is a large chamber work by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart scored for thirteen instruments: twelve wind instruments and string bass. The piece was probably composed in 1781 or 1782 and is often known by the subtitle “Gran Partita”, though the title is a misspelling and not in Mozart’s hand. It consists of seven movements and is considered of Mozart’s greatest works for wind instruments.
