This evening will belong to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. We will begin with his Violin Concerto in A Major, described by Alfred Einstein as “unsurpassed for brilliance, tenderness, and wit.” In the second part of the concert, we will hear a unique work, long shrouded in legend, to the point that it is difficult to distinguish between authentic events and myths. The Requiem in D Minor is one of Mozart’s greatest sacral works, and at the same time his last, unfinished composition.
