Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's magnificent Requiem will be performed by the Camerata – The Friends of Music Orchestra on 25 April, under the baton of the pioneer of period-instrument early music in Greece, Markellos Chryssicos.
Mozart's dazzling swansong takes on new dimensions through the unique sound of the Camerata's period instruments, an ensemble that ranks among the world’s leading orchestras for historically informed performance. Ethereal melodies of period trombones, bassoons, as well as the rare basset horn that preoccupied the composer so intensely in the latter part of his life will resound in Stavros Niarchos Hall, in a solemn concert dedicated to the Holy Passion.
