4.19.2024 PASATIEMPO—Reverance for a requiem

Click HERE to learn more about Mozart’s Requiem through interviews in today’s Pasatiempo with conductor laureate Thomas O’Connor, and principal basset horn player Jeffrey Brooks.

“Even though he didn’t finish it, the Requiem is the peak of Mozart’s sacred writing. He takes very small fragments of melodies, and he manipulates them, and turns them upside down and backwards, and uses them over and over throughout the piece, so all the sections are related.”—Thomas O’Connor, conductor laureate

“Anna Clyne’s piece is called Within Her Arms and it is a remeberance of her mother. I found it was a really good pairing for the Requiem. A requiem is a mass for the dead and Anna Clyne’s mother had passed away … it’s a very moving piece, theres an emotional connection there.”—Thomas O’Connor, Conductor Laureate.
