An otherworldly quality is woven throughout the evening. Mozart’s Requiem is a high-level drama. Principal guest conductor Barbara Hannigan makes the work her own. We also hear Veronika Eberle play Berg’s violin concerto, called In Memory of an Angel. 

Mozart’s Requiem was composed in 1791 and is surrounded by mythology. He composed it while battling death, but was unable to complete it. His students Franz Süssmayr and Joseph Eybler completed it on behalf of Mozart’s widow, Constanze, who was in desperate need of money for her family. 

The drama of death is portrayed through the music and has it all: a heavenly introduction on the basset horn, doomsday trumpets, a choir of angels. Tears, prayers and sorrow. 

Just as nature morphs towards beauty and perfection, Samuel Barber refined the hymn Christe, du Lamm Gottes by J.S. Bach. He reworked the piece for brass and timpani in 1968 and called it Mutations from Bach. 

Alban Berg also quoted one of Bach’s chorales in his violin concerto. It was composed in memory of a young woman in his friendship circle who passed away much too soon. Performing the solo is the unparalleled violinist Veronika Eberle.
