A magnificent religious building with a large cupola: St. Charles' Church, the last work of the eminent baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. A special setting for this unique performance of the Mozart Requiem, performed in the version completed by F.X.Süssmayr. Mozart was anonymously commissioned to write a requiem in the summer of 1791, which he composed during his progressing illness in the last months of his life. He was unable to complete the great work by the time of his death, December 5th, 1791. Although the general public at this time showed little interest in Mozart or his serious illness, Mozart spent the last months of his life musically preoccupied with his own anticipated death. This Requiem reflects the phases of fear, hope and salvation that Mozart went through before he could complete his work and died.
Concerts take place from April to October
