Mozart composed part of the Requiem in Vienna in late 1791, but it was unfinished at his death on 5 December the same year. A completed version of Mozart’s Requiem dated 1792 by Franz Xaver Süssmayr was delivered to Count Franz von Walsegg, who commissioned the piece for a requiem service to commemorate the anniversary of his wife’s death on 14 February. Mozart’s “Masonic funeral music” was composed in 1785. This is a short but extremely poignant work, considered one of Mozart’s absolute masterpieces, but rarely performed due to the uniqueness of its original orchestration.
