Muti Conducts Mozart Requiem
Thursday, February 19, 2015
When he died at only 35 years of age, Mozart left his Requiem uncompleted, yet it is undoubtedly among his most magnificent achievements. Who can forget the fiery “Confutatis,” which alternates between male voices damning the wicked and ethereal women’s voices invoking the Lord to take innocent souls to heaven? Or the poignant “Lacrimosa”? Pianist Rudolf Buchbinder opens the program with Mozart’s turbulent Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor.
