Mozart’s Requiem was the final work of the great composer, and is one of the most popular masterworks of the classical repertoire.
The OCM will also present a work by Joseph Boulogne, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Saint-Georges’ glistening and buoyant Symphonie concertante no. 2 will take you into the perfumed salons of old France with all its understated elegance.
Lacrimae Beati (Tears of the Blessed One) was inspired by the "Lacrimosa" of Mozart’s Requiem, thought to hold the last eight notes Mozart wrote in his life, and which ran incessantly through composer Richard Danielpour’s mind through a harrowing flight.
Under the direction of maestro Jacques Lacombe, this emotionally charged concert is a benefit for the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal, and will feature the singers Emma Fekete (soprano), Ian Sabourin (countertenor), Matthew Dalen (tenor) and Matthew Li (bass), current and former members of the Atelier Lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal.
