Programme

W.A. Mozart, Requiem (KV 626)

W. A. Mozart’s Requiem is one of the best and most moving pieces classical music has to offer. The myths surrounding Mozart's last composition contribute to the incredible appeal of this masterpiece. The Requiem is filled with the strong emotions that come to man in the face of death: Fear, anger, despair, sadness, hope, consolation.

During his lifetime and after his death, Mozart was associated with St. Stephen's Cathedral in several ways: He married Constanze Weber here, had two of his children baptized and a few months before his death, Mozart applied for the position of music director adjunct at St. Stephen's. Mozart's name can be found both in the record of his death and in the cathedral's Book of Death Fees.

The Vienna University Philharmonic will perform the Mozart Requiem in St. Stephen's Cathedral to support the cathedral. The Vienna University Philharmonic consists of more than 1,000 musicians and singers of all ages, who play in two orchestras and eight choirs, making it one of the largest musical communities in the world. Every year 40 - 50 concerts are performed in Austria and abroad and reach an audience of about 20,000.

Vijay Upadhyaya was born in Lucknow, India. He studied in Austria at the University of Music in Graz and completed diploma courses in Indian percussion and dance in India. He is also a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, Economics and History. Since 1994 he has been Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of the University of Vienna.
