Mozart’s Requiem is a choral masterpiece that he composed in 1791, just a few months before his untimely death at the age of 35. The work was commissioned by a mysterious stranger who wished to remain anonymous and claimed that the Requiem was intended for his own funeral. Mozart, who was in poor health and struggling financially, accepted the commission and set to work on the piece.

Unfortunately, Mozart was not able to complete the Requiem before his death, leaving behind only sketches and notes for several of the movements. The work was completed by Franz Xaver Süssmayr, one of Mozart’s pupils, who used Mozart’s sketches to finish the piece. Despite its incomplete nature, the Requiem remains one of Mozart’s most celebrated and beloved works, known for its dramatic intensity, intricate choral writing, and haunting beauty.
