Mozart Requiem Mass
at the St. Charles Church Vienna
The Requiem has a mysterious history, riddled with deception and manipulation. The work was commissioned by Count Walsegg in July 1791, who wanted to pass off the work as his own, so the circumstances of the commission were kept secret. Upon Mozart`s death, Constanze (his wife) had the work completed by other composers, but in order to receive the final payment, their assistance had to be kept secret.
At the same time, Constanze wanted to present the Requiem as being entirely written by Mozart, in order for her to make the most of it. When it became known that others except Mozart assisted with the Requiem, Constanze insisted that Mozart left explicit instructions for the work`s completion. Many claimed that Antonio Salieri played a role in the completion and commision of the Requiem as well as involving him in Mozart`s death.
St. Charles Church (just a few hundred meters located from the place Mozart died) is one of Vienna`s most impressing and significant buildings. Between April and October it is the ideal location to perform Mozart´s last work. The concerts are performed by Choir and Soloists of the Salzburg Concert Society as well as by the Orchestra 1756. All together there are more than 40 musicians on stage. The Orchestra 1756 plays on so called historical instruments.
The concerts take place from April to October every Saturday at 20:15. A special concert is performed on December 4th 2018 at 23:45 at the anniversary of Mozart`s death. Seats are available in three different categories. The seats are not numbered, seating will be assigned by the usher at the entrance according to ticket category.Discounts for children and students are only availabe .
