A masterpiece of the choral literature, Mozart's Requiem, his last work, was commissioned in the summer of 1791 but left incomplete at the time of the composer's death in December of the same year. His colleague Franz Sussmayer finished the work, based on sketches left by Mozart.In the two centuries since its composition, the Requiem has become one of the most recorded and performed works in the repertoire. Reprinted here from the authoritative Breitkopf & Hartel edition, it combines orchestra, chorus, and four soloists in a deeply moving, elegiac work of glowing intensity.This edition of the Requiem is in full score, with bar-numbered movements for easy reference. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, durable, and portable volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike."
