Payare Conducts Mozart’s Moving Requiem 2024-2025

The dramatic intensity and emotional candour expressed in Mozart’s Requiem are part of the fascination this work continues to arouse, more than 200 years after its first performance.
Mozart Festival

The dramatic intensity and emotional candour expressed in Mozart’s Requiem contribute to the fascination this work continues to arouse more than 200 years after it was written. Bach similarly approaches the theme of death through an aura of contemplative humanism in the motet Jesu, meine Freude, in which a serene vision of the afterlife is offered. The genius of both Bach and Mozart will be celebrated by the Orchestra and the OSM Chorus. Mozart Festival
