MOZART REQUIEM

Mozart Requiem

Past Performance

Monica Huggett, Director, Cappella Romana and the Trinity Chamber Singers

Music, like fashion, swings back and forth like a pendulum through time; some eras are passionate and fiery, others restricted and emotionally restrained. Breaking with the restraint of the classical period, nothing feels timid or conservative about Mozart’s Requiem. Timpani, strings, brass, chorus, soloists–all are brought to bear on the Latin text’s plea for peace and eternal rest.

Pre-concert talk at 6:30: John K. Cox, PBO Board Director and Visiting Assistant Professor of Music at Reed College, will discuss the music on this program.
