Mozart’s Requiem was the final work of the great composer, and is one of the most popular masterworks of the classical repertoire.
Joseph Boulogne, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges: fencing champion, violinist, conductor, and composer was the rage of Paris when Mozart was still a boy. Saint-Georges’ glistening and buoyant Symphonie concertante no. 2 will take you into the perfumed salons of Ancien régime France with all its understated elegance.
Lacrimae Beati (Tears of the Blessed One) was inspired by the ‘’Lacrimosa’’ of Mozart’s Requiem, thought to hold the last eight notes Mozart wrote in his life, and which ran incessantly through composer Richard Danielpour’s mind through a harrowing flight.
This concert, a benefit for the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal, will feature a vocal quartet of current and former members of the Atelier Lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal.
