Sat 13 Nov
8:30pm | St. Stephen’s Cathedral
The net proceeds of the concert will go to the association "Unser Stephansdom".
The Requiem, which is one of Mozart's most popular and appreciated works, fits particularly well in the cathedral: in the last years of his life, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart turned increasingly to church music. In 1791, he successfully applied for the position of adjunct to the Domkapellmeister at St. Stephen's in Vienna, which subsequently led to the commission of the Requiem.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.
Günter Geyer, chairman of the association "Unser Stephansdom": "A huge thank you to the TU-Orchestra Vienna. The renovation work on the cathedral in the next few years will focus on the renovation of the north pediment. With the support of this charity concert, we are a big step further here."
