Conductor Thomas Hengelbrock performs classical repertoire as authentically as possible: one cannot get closer to the source. This is even more enjoyable with music the composer left unfinished, for whatever reason. Mozart composed his Requiem in the year of his death, a work which is as much about the life force as it is about reconciliation with death. With the vocal parts, he proved one last time just how brilliant his instincts were for drama and extraordinarily expressive melodies. Most of the orchestration had to be completed by others. Still today, the reasons behind the work’s genesis are shrouded in mystery. Even without the mystery, though, the Requiem is a work which truly touches everyone who hears it. Schubert’s Eighth Symphony also remained unfinished. No one knows why – after all, Schubert was never short on melodic miracles.
