Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Requiem

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Requiem

Süßmayr-Version

KV 626, 1791

Description

The history of the genesis of the Requiem is entwined with legends and anecdotes. The burdens of the composition and performance of La Clemenza di Tito and Die Zauberflöte, and an acute infection led to the collapse and death of the composer following a short illness. Mozart left his wife in considerable debt. Constanze therefore turned to Mozart’s friends, asking them to complete the fragment. After two failed attempts, the task passed to Mozart’s pupil Franz Xaver Süßmayr, who completed the Requiem in the form known today, using working materials that are no longer extant, and perhaps verbal instructions from the composer. Today the Süßmayr version is still the most well known, and it is doubtless the one with the closest historical ties to Mozart.

This work is now available in carus music, the choir app!

Reviews

[...] Nach zwei gescheiterten Versuchen kam die Aufgabe an Mozarts Schüler Franz Xaver Süßmayr, der das Requiem in der heute bekannten Form abschloss. Dabei standen ihm heute verlorenes Werkstattmaterial, vielleicht auch mündliche Anweisungen Mozarts zur Verfügung. Diese Version ist heute noch am bekanntesten, sie steht Mozart zweifellos historisch am nächsten. In einer Neuausgabe wird Süßmayrs Fassung getreu nach den Originalquellen wiedergegeben. Dankenswerterweise legt Carus eine neue, hervorragend gemachte Urtext-Ausgabe der Süßmayrschen Ergänzung von Mozarts letztem Werk vor. [...]

[...] Die Carus-Ausgabe überzeugt durch das ausführliche Vorwort und einen besonders ausführlichen kritischen Bericht.
