WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
His Requiem is among the best loved of all choral works, with an intriguing history to add mystery to the music. Mozart, already a sick man, had illusions that the work had been commissioned by none other than Death himself, and that he was therefore writing his own Requiem.
1,000-plus singers from The Really Big Chorus will perform this astonishingly powerful piece, full of fervour and passion. Also on the programme are two other deservedly popular works by Mozart: the toe-tapping Eine kleine Nachtmusik and the lyrical Clarinet Concerto. The Really Big Chorus is proud to support the British Heart Foundation, and all proceeds from programme sales, collections, sponsorship and advertising will benefit this prominent national charity.
