Emperor Quartet Vienna & solo violin
A. Vivaldi, The Four Seasons
W. A. Mozart, Requiem (KV 626, extracts in quartet version)
€ 35,- / € 25,- with view
St. Michael‘s Church, the place where, in honor of the great composer, Mozart’s Requiem was first performed, opens its doors for a summer concert series for the first time.
In addition to Antonio Vivaldi’s most famous work, The Four Seasons, a parable of Life and Death, parts of Mozart’s Requiem in quartet version, that were first performed at St. Michael's Church on 10 December 1791 during the funeral mass for Vienna’s beloved composer, will be played.
In 1740, a poor Vivaldi arrived in Vienna, with high hopes for patronage from the Emperor. Only ten months after his arrival, Vivaldi passed away and was therefore buried in Vienna. Vivaldi, the virtuous Violinist and Opera Composer, understood like no other how to create art with music, pieces which still fascinate and captivate us to this day. His four violin concertos achieved musical perfection, and where all extremely well received. You wouldn’t want to miss out the chance to experience Vivaldi and parts of Mozart’s Requiem at St. Michael’s Church.
