Mozart Requiem | Grieg Piano Concerto

Mozart’s Requiem is a thrilling and poignant work, featuring top NZ vocal soloists Natasha Wilson (Soprano), Sarah Court (Alto), Patrick Power (Tenor) and James Harrison (Baritone); supported by Bach Musica NZ’s choir and orchestra under our Artistic and Music Director, Rita Paczian‘s indomitable baton. Described as the composer’s “last and most perfect work”, the Requiem is a profound expression of grief and loss, but also hope and light, and so is a timely piece for current times.

Rita is thrilled that we are able to perform this work: “Mozart’s Requiem has always been one of my favourite pieces of music. After the hugely successful movie ‘Amadeus’ (1984), it gained fame far beyond usual classical music lovers. Did Mozart know that this piece would be performed at his own funeral?”

Tony Yan Tong Chen will also present Grieg’s only Piano Concerto. Tony is already forging himself a reputation as one of the country’s most exciting and versatile emerging classical musicians.
