Ensemble Series presents TX State Symphonic Choir and TX State Symphony Orchestra performing "Requiem" by W.A. Mozart completed by Robert Levin, conducted by Dr. Jonathan Babcock
First Baptist Church, 325 W. McCarty Ln, San Marcos, TX 78666
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.
