MOZART’S REQUIEM

2017–18 Season

XIAN ZHANG conductor
Soloists from the CURTIS INSTITUTE OF MUSIC
MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY SINGERS Heather J. Buchanan, conductor
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Journey into the most profound reaches of the soul with Mozart, the guiding spirit of this unique program. The MSU ensemble brings exquisite luster to a moving pair of a cappella works. Performed without intermission, the evening culminates in Mozart’s awe-inspiring Requiem, his final gift to the ages.

  • MOZART Ave verum corpus
    Stately, filled with grace; suspends time with a long-breathed melody.

  • RHEINBERGER Abendlied for a cappella chorus
    Rheinberger’s consoling piece proclaims: “Bide with us, for evening shadows darken, and the day will soon be over.”

  • PARRY Flame for a cappella chorus
    Parry’s contemporary work strikes a hopeful note with a quote from the Buddha: “A single flame that shares its light is but strengthened by this splitting in two.”

  • MOZART Requiem
    Was Mozart writing his own epitaph with this shattering work? Once experienced, it is never forgotten.

  • This program will be performed without intermission.
