Hervé Niquet Conductor
Mozart's Requiem ranks high in the pantheon of musical works: splendid, moving, thunderous, it captivates the listener; unfinished, composed at the time of Mozart's death, completed by his pupils to be delivered to his mysterious patron, it is full of the mystery and drama of its conception. But it is a masterpiece, and that is how it should be approached, above all. Hervé Niquet has brought together the most sensitive soloists for this exceptional music accompanied by a mirror work: Antonio Salieri's Requiem, composed in 1804 by the famous master of the Imperial Chapel in Vienna since 1788. Known throughout Europe for his operas, he gave up his operatic career to turn to sacred music, and with a flagship work, the Requiem; he was certainly familiar with Mozart's version. So, for both the concert and the recording, here is a wonderful opportunity to compare two compositions separated by a decade, and by the myth surrounding Mozart's death.
