In contrast to Fauré’s Requiem heard just two weeks earlier at the Sheldonian Theatre, Mozart’s brims with music of the utmost imposition. In truth, there’s no need for contextual intrigue to heighten the drama and poignancy of Mozart’s Requiem, because the composer delivered both and more in his music in a piece that moves from the dark clouds of fate to the piercing light of optimism. After one of the composer’s most sophisticated piano concertos, Marios Papadopoulos conducts the Requiem here with the Schola Cantorum of Oxford and a first-class team of vocal soloists.

Please note, the Young Artists’ Platform that was scheduled before this concert has unfortunately been cancelled due to health issues of the performer.

The Sheldonian Theatre is a unique space to experience live music. To see an interactive map of the theatre click here.
