Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Requiem Mass in C Minor (Levin completion)
A grand concert featuring Mozart's Requiem in the version completed in 1991 by Harvard musicologist Robert Levin. Based on an exhaustive scholarly investigation, Levin's version reconsidered the "scraps of papers" rediscovered in 1960 that were exchanged between Mozart's student Süssmayr and Constanze Mozart. Levin's completion respects the history of the work in the form completed by Süssmayr but also resolves issues and mistakes made in haste to deliver the work to the publisher Breitkopf. In addition, Levin expands the beautiful Lacrimosa and concludes the work with a more majestic and satisfying Amen.
