In 1791, Mozart began to compose his Requiem in response to an anonymous commission. But he died that year, at age 35, having completed only the opening Requiem and Kyrie movements. Over the centuries, many composers have written completions of the remaining movements for this work, often considered as one of the greatest musical treasures of all time. The ACO will use the esteemed completion by Mozart scholar Robert D. Levin. This performance of Mozart’s Requiem commemorates the lives lost during the pandemic. The soloists are soprano Yulan Piao; mezzo-soprano Heather Petrie; tenor Lawrence Jones; and baritone Joseph Charles Beutel. The world premiere of Thomas Crawford’s Elegy was written to honor the memory of Orchestra’s Principal Second Violinist Judson Griffin, who passed away in 2020.
