Many will remember the events leading to Mozart’s death as represented in the 1984 period drama, Amadeus: five months before his death, Mozart was commissioned by an anonymous stranger to write a Requiem Mass.  Delirious with fever and convinced he was writing his own funeral music, Mozart died before completing his Requiem leaving it to his student – Franz Xaver Süssmayr -- to hastily complete the score. Texas State presents the thrilling revised completion by Harvard University professor and Mozart scholar, Robert Levin.
