About the Event
Mozart's Requiem, composed in 1791, was the composer's final composition, and it became one of his most famous works.
According to tradition, the Requiem was commissioned by a mysterious client, who insisted the work be completed very quickly. This demand was not met, because the composer died before the piece was finished. Some of Mozart's closest students later completed the composition.
