Mozart's choral masterpiece crowns a sublime evening of his greatest works performed by the English Chamber Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall. Left unfinished at the time of his death, Mozart's enigmatic, seductive and deeply religious 'Requiem' is one of the most recognisable choral pieces in sacred music, with reverberations throughout modern day popular culture, from 'The Big Lebowski' to 'X-Men'. The programme also features the composer's 'Piano Concerto No. 21' with its famous three part 'Andante', and the lively but haunting 'Overture to Don Giovanni'.
