Requiem in D minor, K. 626
The Requiem in D minor, K. 626, is a requiem mass by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composed in 1791. In specific, the work was partly composed by the composer and completed by Franz Süssmayr in 1792. The production was most likely commissioned by Mozart himself for his own funeral.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Perhaps the most important composer of all time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an Austrian composer of the late 18th century. Born in 1756 in Salzburg, he showed prodigious musical talent from childhood. Beginning at five years of age, he composed more than 600 works, including concertos, symphonies, religious works and operas before his premature death at the age of 35. Hi influence over successive generations cannot be overestated — Ludwig van Beethoven wrote of Mozart 'posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years”. Despite the immense success of his compositions, and the acclaim he received across Europe, Mozart achieved little financial security and rwas buried in an unmarked grave in Vienna's St Marx Cemetery.
