Even its composerís death could not halt the success of Mozartís Requiem. Although left incomplete on his death in December 1791, having been anonymously commissioned, the Requiem was completed by a pupil of Mozartís, Franz Xaver SŁssmayr. By the time it was premiered in 1793, it was already a famous work, shrouded in mystery. But even more mysterious than the story behind it is the magisterial quality of Mozartís writing, from the ferocity of the Dies irae to the otherworldly grace of the Lacrimosa.
Genia KŁhmeier, Elisabeth Kulman, Mark Padmore and Adam Plachetka are the world-class soloists joining Jansons and his orchestra and chorus. Padmore was Artist-in-Residence with the orchestra for the 2016/17 season and his rapport with the orchestra is evident. His ringing, distinctive tenor voice is well matched, too, to Jansonsís eloquent and subtle interpretation. ĎFor him it is not about rhetoric, but more about transcendence,í wrote SŁddeutsche Zeitung of Jansonsís conducting Ė suggesting a transcendent faith in humanity, even in the face of death.
