The Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) is surely one of the best compositions of western classical music and the most frequently performed of all Requiems. Mozart composed the work on his deathbed, and it was left unfinished after his death in December 1791. The composition was completed by Mozart’s assistant Franz Xaver Süssmayr (1766–1803).

This magnificent piece gives comfort for anyone dealing with the limitations of life. For hundreds of years, the Requiem prayer series has helped Christendom to manage with humanity’s most difficult theme, death. Despite the gloomy theme, there is peace in the words and melodies of Requiem, as the word ”requies”, peace, suggests. “Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine et lux perpetua luceat eis. – Lord, give them eternal rest, and let eternal light shine upon them.” 

The soloists of the concert are soprano Tuuli Takala, countertenor Teppo Lampela, tenor Tuomas Katajala and bass Mika Kares. Tapiola Sinfonietta and Tapiola Chamber Choir is lead by conductor Topi Lehtipuu and choir director Hannu Norjanen.

Mozart’s Requiem is performed as the opening concert of Organ Night & Aria Festival and as a visiting concert in Vantaa at the Church of St:Lawrence on Wednesday, May 31, 2023 at 7 p.m.
