Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ave verum corpus, in D major
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Requiem

Around the All Souls’ Day, the Vanemuine symphony orchestra will perform Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s last major work – The Requiemunder the baton of conductor Risto Joost. When the piece was commissioned, the composer was already gravely ill and began composing it at the end of 1791. Unfortunately, he died before completing the work and thus it was finished by one of his students. The programme also includes Mozart’s motet Ave verum corpus, which he wrote in 1791.

The concert in Rakvere will take place as part of the programme of the Rakvere Culture Festival.

Soloists Karmen Puis, Pirjo Jonas, Rasmus Kull or Hisatoshi Nezu, Simo Breede or Kristjan Häggblom
Conductor Risto Joost
