Creation 2018

Mozart’s Requiem and Haydn’s The Seven Last Words of our Saviour on the Cross are two works which are clearly associated: rooted in an exchange between the human and the divine, between life and death, and between the body and the spirit. Although the works are rarely performed together, the complementarity is clear when they are heard, both in their message and in their musical form. Two different stagings are created here by Louise Moaty and the works are performed by heart, giving the four musicians the freedom to move about and to be enriched by their profound knowledge of the score, thus expressing the full dramatic essence of these two masterful compositions.
