It’s one of the most famous classical choral works we have. But the story of Mozart’s Requiem Mass remains something of a mystery. How much of it did he actually finish?
To add to the intrigue, Mozart himself did not know from whom he had received the commission.
Unfinished at the time of his death, the music we hear today reveals Mozart’s highly charged state. As Beethoven put it, "If Mozart did not write the music, then the man who wrote it was a Mozart."
