Ever seen the movie Amadeus? Mozart deathly ill, lying back motionlessly on his pillows, dictating; Salieri at his bed with a scratching quill? Mozart composed his beloved Requiem on his deathbed. The emotions it expresses are too great to put into words.
In his touching and intimate Requiem, Mozart expresses all the feelings of loss, sorrow, and death. The Italian guest conductor Michele Mariotti, who was performed in the famous opera houses like the Scala in Milan, Covent Garden in London, and the Metropolitan in New York before, creates an experience you will not easily forget, together with the orchestra, the top singers of the Groot Omroepkoor, and a dream cast of soloists. Before the intermission: the symphony Schubert himself called ‘Tragic’, a symphony that also sparkles with the joy of life in addition to all the sadness. Well... Schubert was only nineteen, of course.
