Teodor Currentzis and his ensemble MusicAeterna and MusicaAeterna Choir give their Salzburg Festival debut at the Felsenreitschule with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Requiem in D minor.

Currentzis, who was just named “Conductor of the Year” by international critics, is the artistic director of the Perm State Opera and Ballet Theatre and also of the prize winning period performance ensemble MusicAeterna and the MusicAeterna Choir, both of which were formed in 2004 during his tenure as music director of the Novosibirsk State Opera and Orchestra (2004–10). MusicAeterna has now been granted the status of the principal orchestra of the Perm State Opera and Ballet Theatre.
Together with soprano Anna Prohaska, contralto Katharina Magiera, tenor Mauro Peter and the bass Tareq Nazmi, they will perform Mozart’s’ last composition – his Requiem.
Being one his most popular and yet most profound and sublime creations it is at the same time the one most shrouded in mystery. The purportedly enigmatic patron who ordered the work and the fatal illness that befell Mozart while he was working on it, long nurtured the macabre legend of Mozart composing his own Requiem mass commissioned by Death himself. The sombre woodwinds and brass, the artless melodies and the stirring shifts from intricate contrapuntal writing to mighty homophonic blocks convey an otherworldly, apocalyptic feeling seldom encountered in Mozart's works.
