The final days of Mozart’s life are wrapped in a veil of mystery. Not only is the exact cause of death the subject of debate, but also what happened in the final hours on his deathbed.
Be that as it may, Mozart’s Requiem has become one of his most popular works.
The imposing choral sections of course have a lot to do with it. But the unusual, black-velvet universe Mozart created, full of daring and sometimes extreme harmonies, contributes to this appealing musical kaleidoscope.
