A model rendition of Mozart's ever-popular death mass


After its resounding success two years ago, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century once again joins forces with Cappella Amsterdam for one of the finest works in the classical repertoire. Mozart's Requiem. A stately work about death and mourning, but oh so magnificent and emotional. For forty years this iconic work has been on the orchestra's lectern, and still it does not bore. Every note and bar never ceases to surprise. A true masterpiece.  

In the second half, the orchestra plays another Mozart masterpiece: Symphony No. 40. As with Beethoven's fifth, the whole world knows the first few bars, but this world-famous piece hides many brilliant passages that never surface because it always sticks to the first notes. The Orchestra and Cappella dust it off, making Mozart sound like it's the first time you've heard it.
