About the Event
The Jove Filharmonia Catalana JOFICAT will be joined by acclaimed Czech violinist, Iván Ženatý, and renowned Mexican violist, José Adolfo Alejo Solís, for Mozart's beloved Sinfonia Concertante and Requiem at the Palau de la Música Catalana.
The Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat for violin and viola, K364, is an emblematic work for many Mozart music lovers, and undoubtedly the best music he has composed in Salzburg.
Experience the concentrated spirituality of Mozart's Requiem, left unfinished at his death in 1791. With its expressive choral writing, inventive use of orchestral colours, and striking vocal solo passages, the Requiem is one of the most compelling works of its kind.
