Orchestra and Chorus of the Greek National Opera.

The Greek National Opera presents Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Requiem on Saturday 16 April 2011 at 20:00 hours at the Olympia Theatre.

The Requiem in D Minor (K.626) is for many the crown jewel of Mozart’s musical opus (1756-1791), his last and most superior achievement, since in that piece music and words blend in a transcendental way.
The conditions under which the work was written are even today shrouded in a veil of mystery. While the commissioning of the Magic Flute was a caprice of fate, and the commission for La Clemenza di Tito came from an enthusiastic impresario, the existence of the Requiem is surely a commission from some member of the aristocracy to Mozart. In return for paying a price of 60 ducats, this aristocrat intended to dedicate the work to the memory of his wife while presenting that piece as one of his own!
Mozart himself did not manage to complete the work. The contribution of Franz-Xaver Süssmayr, 1766-1803) was definitive in completing the composition and orchestrating the parts.
